   Foreign-Trade Zone 49 -- Newark/Elizabeth, New Jersey; Application for 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, grantee of 
FTZ 49, requesting authority to expand its zone to include sites in 
Bayonne and Jersey City, New Jersey, within the Newark Customs port of 
entry. The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the 
Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Act, as amended (19 USC 81a-81u), and the 
regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on 
September 18, 1989. 
   FTZ 49 was approved on April 6, 1979 (Board Order 146, 44 FR 22502, 
4/16/79). Expansions were authorized by the Board on May 26, 1983 (Board 
Order 211, 48 FR 24958, 6/3/83) and on October 23, 1987 (Board Order 365, 
52 FR 41599, 10/29/87). The zone project currently involves the Port 
Newark/Elizabeth Port Authority Marine Terminal (2100 acres), the adjacent 
Elizabeth Industrial Park (124 acres), and the nearby Global Marine Terminal
(GMT) facility (41 acres) in Bayonne/Jersey City, some 4 miles east of the 
Port Newark/Elizabeth Marine Terminal. 
   The grantee is now requesting authority to further expand the zone to 
include the 145-acre Port Authority Auto Marine Terminal and adjacent 
53-acre Greenville Industrial Park on Upper New York Bay's Port Jersey 
Channel in Bayonne and Jersey City, New Jersey. The sites are located 
adjacent to the GMT site in Bayonne/Jersey City. The Port Authority 
recently established the separate Auto Marine Terminal to improve port 
services for auto-related activity. The Greenville Industrial Park site 
is a new public industrial park project owned by the Jersey City Economic 
Development Corporation. 
   No manufacturing approvals are being sought at this time. Such requests 
would be made to the Board on a case-by-case basis. 
   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has 
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The 
committee consists of: John J. Da Ponte, Jr., (Chairman), Director, 
Foreign-Trade Zones Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC
