   Resolution and Order Approving With Restriction the Application of the 
Greater Burlington Industrial Corporation for a Special-Purpose Subzone at 
the Food Products Manufacturing Plant of Wyeth Nutritionals, Inc., Georgia, 
Vermont; Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, DC  
TEXT: Resolution and Order 
   Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 USC 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
adopts the following Resolution and Order: 
   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:  
   After consideration of the application of the Greater Burlington 
Industrial Corporation, grantee of FTZ 55, filed with the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Board (the Board) on January 22, 1988, and amended on June 27, 1989 
(to limit the request to dairy products), requesting special-purpose 
subzone status for the infant food products manufacturing plant of Wyeth 
Nutritionals, Inc., in the Town of Georgia, Vermont, 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 that all foreign dairy products admitted to the subzone be 
reexported, 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.  
Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
Grant of Authority; To Establish a Foreign-Trade Subzone at the Wyeth Plant
in Georgia, Vermont 
   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 Greater Burlington Industrial Corporation, grantee of 
Foreign-Trade Zone No. 55, has made application (filed January 22, 1988, 
FTZ Docket 5-88, 53 FR 3412, and amended on June 27, 1989) in due and proper
form to the Board for authority to establish a special-purpose subzone at 
the infant food products manufacturing plant of Wyeth Nutritionals, Inc. 
(subsidiary of American Home Products Corporation) located in the Town of 
Georgia, Vermont, adjacent to the St. Albans 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 heard; 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 provided approval is given subject to the restrictions 
in the resolution accompanying this action; 
   Now, Therefore, in accordance with the application filed January 22, 
1988, as amended on June 27, 1989, the Board hereby authorizes the 
establishment of a subzone at the Wyeth plant in Georgia, Vermont, 
designated on the records of the Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone No. 55B, 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 the installation of suitable facilities.
   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 or his delegate at Washington, DC., this 22nd day of 
February, 1990, pursuant to Order of the Board. 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
