Resolution and Order Approving the Application of the County of Monroe, for
a Foreign-Trade Zone in New York 
TEXT: Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, DC.  
Resolution and Order 
   Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June
18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board has
adopted the following Resolution and Order: 
   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders: After 
consideration of the application of the County of Monroe, New York, filed 
with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on January 4, 1984 (Docket 
1-84) and amended on September 12, 1986 (Docket 30-86), requesting a grant 
of authority for establishing, operating, and maintaining a general-purpose 
foreign-trade zone in Monroe County, New York, within the Rochester Customs
port of entry, the Board, finding that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade
Zones Act, as amended, and the Board's regulations are satisfied, and that 
the proposal is in the public interest, approves the application. 
   As the proposal involves open space on which buildings may be constructed
by parties other than the grantee, this approval includes authority to the 
grantee to permit the erection of such buildings, pursuant to @ 400.815 of
the Board's regulations, as are necessary to carry out the zone proposal, 
providing that prior to its granting such permission it shall have the 
concurrences of the local District Director of Customs, the U.S. Army 
District Engineer, when appropriate, and the Board's Executive Secretary. 
Further, the grantee shall notify the Board for approval prior to the 
commencement of any manufacturing operation within the zone. The Secretary 
of Commerce, as Chairman and Executive of the Board, is hereby authorized 
to issue a grant of authority and appropriate Board Order.

   Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To provide
for the establishment, operation, and maintenance of foreign-trade zones in
ports of entry of the United States, to expedite and encourage foreign 
commerce, and for other purposes," as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) (the Act),
the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) is authorized and empowered to 
grant to corporations the privilege of establishing, operating, and 
maintaining foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to ports of entry under the 
jurisdiction of the United States;   

   Whereas, the County of Monroe, New York (the Grantee), has made 
application (filed January 4, 1984, Docket No. 1-84, 49 FR 1261, and amended
on September 12, 1986, Docket No. 30-86, 51 FR 34478) in due and proper 
form to the Board, requesting the establishment, operation and maintenance 
of a foreign-trade zone in Monroe County, New York, within the Rochester

full opportunity has been afforded all intested parties to be heard; and, 
   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the 
Board's regulations (15 CFR Part 400) are satisfied; 
   Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants to the Grantee the privilege of 
establishing, operating, and maintaining a foreign-trade zone, designated on
the records of the Board as Zone No. 141 at the location mentioned above and

and unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade zone site in 
the performance of their official duties. 
   The grant does not include authority for manufacturing operations, and 
the Grantee shall notify the Board of approval prior to the commencement of
any manufacturing or assembly operations within the zone. 
   The grant shall not be construed to relieve the Grantee from liability 
for injury or damage to the person or property of others occasioned by the
construction, operation, or maintenance of said zone, and in no event shall
the United States be liable thereof.
