   Resolution and Order Approving the Application of the Port of Corpus 
Christi Authority for a Subzone at the Reynolds Metals Company Plant in the 
Corpus Christi, TX, Area 
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 (the
Board) has adopted the following Resolution and Order: 
   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:  
   After consideration of the application of the Port of Corpus Christi 
Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 122, filed with the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Board (the Board) on March 4, 1988, requesting special-purpose 
subzone status at the alumina plant of Reynolds Metals Company (Sherwin 
Plant) located in the Corpus Christi, Texas, port of entry area, 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. 
   The Secretary of Commerce, as Chairman and Executive Officer 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 Board's regulations (15 CFR 400.304) provide for the 
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities 
cannot serve the specific use involved, and where a significant public 
benefit will result; 
   Whereas, the Port of Corpus Christi Authority, grantee of Foreign-
Trade Zone 122, has made application (filed March 4, 1988, FTZ Docket 
15-88, 53 FR 8681), in due and proper form to the Board for authority to 
establish a special-purpose subzone at the alumina production plant of 
Reynolds Metals Company located in San Patricio and Aransas Counties, 
Texas (Corpus Christi area);  
   Whereas, notice of said application has been given and published, and
full opportunity has been afforded all interested parties to be heard; and,
   Whereas, the Board has found that requirements of the Act and the Board's
regulations are satisfied; 
   Now, therefore, in accordance with the application filed March 4, 1988, 
the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at the Reynolds
Corpus Christi area plant, designated on the records of the Board as 
Foreign-Trade Subzone No. 122K at the location mentioned above and more 
particularly described on the maps and drawings accompanying the 
application, said grant of authority being subject to the provisions and 
restrictions of the Act and regulations, and also to the following express 
conditions and limitations:  
   Activation of the subzone shall be commenced within a reasonable time 
from the date of issuance of the grant, and prior thereto the Grantee shall 
obtain all necessary permits from federal, state, and municipal authorities.
   Officers and employees of the United States shall have free and 
unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade subzone in the 
performance of their official duties. 
   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 subzone, and in no event 
shall the United States be liable therefor. 
   The grant is further subject to settlement locally by the District 
Director of Customs and the Army District Engineer with the Grantee 
regarding compliance with their respective requirements for the protection 
of the revenue of the United States and the installation of suitable 
   In Witness Whereof, the Foreign-Trade Zones Board has caused its name 
to be signed and its seal to be affixed hereto by its Chairman and 
Executive Officer at Washington, DC, this 30th day of December 1988, 
pursuant to the Order of the Board.
