                                [Order No. 446] 
                                  54 FR 47247 
                               November 13, 1989 
   Approval for Expansion of Foreign-Trade Zone 86, Tacoma, WA  
TEXT: Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the Foreign-Trade Zones 
Board Regulations (15 CFR part 400), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the 
Board) adopts the following Resolution and Order: 
   Whereas, the Puget Sound Foreign-Trade Zone Association, Grantee of 
Foreign-Trade Zone No. 86, has applied to the Board for authority to expand 
its general-purpose zone at the Port of Tacoma, Washington, within the 
Tacoma Customs port of entry, and for authority for manufacturing within 
the zone on behalf of the tubular goods assembly operation of Kawasaki 
Thermal System, Inc. (KTS); 
   Whereas, the application was accepted for filing on January 25, 1988, and
notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register on February
10, 1988 (Docket 6-88, 53 FR 3907); 
   Whereas, an examiners committee has investigated the application in 
accordance with the Board's regulations and recommends approval;  
   Whereas, the expansion is necessary to improve and expand zone services 
in the Tacoma area; and, 
   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Act, as amended, and the Board's regulations would be satisfied, and 
that the application would be in the public interest, provided approval is 
subject to a restriction requiring KTS to elect privileged foreign status 
on any foreign steel mill products admitted to its zone manufacturing 
   Now, therefore, the Board hereby orders: 
   That, subject to the foregoing restrictions on the KTS activity, the 
Grantee is authorized to expand its zone in accordance with the application 
filed January 25, 1988. The Grantee shall notify the Board for approval 
prior to the commencement of any additional manufacturing or assembly 
operations. The authority given in this Order is subject to settlement 
locally by the district Director of Customs and the District Army Engineer 
regarding compliance with their respective requirements relating to 
foreign-trade zones.  
   Signed at Washington, DC, this 3rd day of November 1989.  
Eric I. Garfinkel, 
   Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Chairman, 
Committee of Alternates, Foreign-Trade Zone. 
John J. Da Ponte, Jr., 
   Executive Secretary.
