October 4, 1990
Temporary Extension of Manufacturing Authority for Berg Steel Pipe Corp.
Plant Within Foreign-Trade Zone 65; Panama City, FL
TEXT: Whereas, in 1981, the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) granted
authority to the Panama City Port Authority (PCPA) to establish FTZ 65,
Panama City, Florida, and authorized manufacturing under zone procedures for
the large diameter steel pipe plant of Berg Steel Pipe Corporation (BSPC)
within FTZ 65 for a period of 5 years (Board Order 171, 46 FR 8072);
Whereas, the Board subsequently extended authority for the BSPC operation
until September 30, 1990 (Board Order 362, 52 FR 28713);
Whereas, on May 30, 1990, PCPA made application to the Board (FTZ Docket
21-90, 55 FR 23955) for an indefinite extension of authority;
Whereas, the review of the request for an indefinite extension will not
be completed by the September 30, 1990, expiration date; and,
Whereas, the FTZ Staff, in a preliminary review, finds that temporary
extension of authority until expiration of the extended President's Steel
Program and Voluntary Restraint Agreements for Steel (March 31, 1992) would
be in the public interest pending completion of the review;
Now, Therefore, the Board hereby orders:
That the manufacturing authority for the BSPC operation within FTZ 65 is
extended to March 31, 1992, subject to all of the other conditions in Board
Orders 171 and 362, pending completion of the review on PCPA's request for
an indefinite time extension.
Signed at Washington, DC this 27th day of September, 1990.
Marjorie A. Chorlins,
Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration Chairman,
Committee of Alternates, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
