                              [Order No. 507]

    		Approval for Expansion of Foreign-Trade
               	Zone 136 Brevard County, FL Port
                      Canaveral Customs Port of Entry

                         Tuesday, February 5, 1991

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 Canaveral Port Authority, Grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 136, 
has applied to the Board for authority to expand its general-purpose zone 
at the port terminal area and to add two sites in Brevard County, Florida, 
within the Port Canaveral Customs port of entry;

Whereas, the application was accepted for filing on October 27, 1989, and
notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register on
November 27, 1989 (Docket 25-89, 54 FR 48793), with amendments on January
31, 1989 (55 FR 4216, 2/7/90) and June 13, 1990 (55 FR 25855, 6/25/90);

Whereas, an examiners committee has investigated the application in
accordance with the Board's regulations and recommends approval, subject to
an activation limit of 500 acres at each of the three sites;

Whereas, the expansion is necessary to improve and expand zone services in
the Brevard County, Florida, area; and,

Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Act, as amended, and the Board's regulations are satisfied, and that 
approval of the application is in the public interest;

Now, therefore, the Board hereby orders:

That the Grantee is authorized to expand the zone in accordance with the
application filed on October 27, 1989, as amended, subject to the condition
that any activation of approved zone space beyond 500 acres at each of the
three zone sites requires further Board approval. The grant does not
include authority for manufacturing operations, and the Grantee shall
notify the Board for approval prior to the commencement of any
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 29th day of January, 1991.

Eric I. Garfinkel,

Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Chairman,
Committee of Alternates, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
