   Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To 
provide for the establishment, operation, and maintenance of foreign-trade

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 New Haven Chamber of Commerce, Grantee of 
Foreign-Trade Zone No. 162, has made application (filed November 7, 
1988, FTZ Docket 36-88, 53 FR 46101) in due and proper form to the Board 
for authority to establish a special-purpose subzone at the pharmaceutical 
and medical products manufacturing plant of Miles, Inc. (subsidiary of 
Bayer AG), in West Haven, Connecticut, adjacent to the New Haven 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 are satisfied; 
   Now, therefore, in accordance with the application filed November 7, 
1988, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at the 
Miles plant in West Haven, Connecticut, designated on the records of the 
Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone 162A 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, 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, all 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 the 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 
    In witness whereof, the Foreign-Trade Zones Board has caused its name 
to besigned and its seal to be affixed hereto by its Chairman and Executive
Officer or his delegate at Washington, DC, this 29th day of June, 1990, 
pursuant to Order of the Board.
