   Resolution and Order Approving With Restriction the Application of 
Georgia Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., for a Special-Purpose Subzone at the 
Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corp., Golf Cart and Water Vehicle Plant in 
Coweta County, GA  
 
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 Georgia Foreign-Trade Zone, 
Inc., filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on November 17, 
1987, requesting special-purpose subzone status at the golf cart and water 
vehicle manufacturing plant of Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corporation of 
America in Coweta County, Georgia, the Board, finding that the requirements 
of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended, and the Board's regulations 
would be satisfied, and that the proposal would be in the public interest 
if approval were given subject to a restriction requiring privileged 
foreign status on all foreign merchandise admitted to the subzone for the 
manufacture of golf carts, beginning two years from the date of subzone 
activation, approves the application subject to the foregoing restriction.
 
   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.   
 
Grant of Authority To Establish a Foreign-Trade Subzone in Coweta County, 
Georgia 
 
   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 Georgia Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of Foreign-Trade 
Zone 26, has made application (filed November 17, 1987, FTZ Docket 35-87, 
52 FR 45474) in due and proper form to the Board for authority to establish 
a special-purpose subzone at the golf cart and water vehicle manufacturing 
plant of Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corporation of America (YMMC), located 
in Coweta County, Georgia, adjacent to the Atlanta Customs port of entry;  
 
   Whereas, notice of said application has been given and published, and 
full opportunity has been afforded all interested parties to be hard; and  
 
   Whereas, The Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the 
Board's regulations would be satisfied and that the proposal would be in the 
public interest if approval were given subject to the restriction in the 
resolution accompanying this action, which limits full authority on golf 
cart activity to a two-year period; 
 
   Now, Therefore, in accordance with the application filed November 17, 
1987, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at YMMC's 
Coweta County, Georgia, plant, designated on the records of the Board as 
Foreign-Trade Subzone No. 26D 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 the Regulations issued thereunder, to the 
restriction in the resolution accompanying this action, 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, any necessary 
permits shall be obtained 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 responsible parties 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 District Army Engineer with the grantee regarding 
compliance with their respective requirements for the protection of the 
revenue of the United States and installation of suitable facilities. 
 
   In Witness Whereof, the Foreign-Trade Zones Board has caused its name to 
be signed an its seal to be affixed hereto by its Chairman and Executive 
Officer or his delegate at Washington, DC, this 31st day of May 1989, 
pursuant to Order of the Board.
