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 City of Phoeniz, Arizona, Grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 
75, has made application (filed August 20, 1990, FTZ Docket 35-90, 55 FR 
35914, 9/4/90) in due and proper form to the Board for authority to 
establish a special-purpose subzone at the Conair Corporation plant in 
Glendale, Arizona;

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 August 20, 1990,
the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at the Conair
plant in Glendale, Arizona, designated on the records of the Board as
Foreign-Trade Subzone 75A, at the location mentioned above and more
particularly described on the maps and drawings accompanying the
application, to the same extent as though the same were fully set forth
herein, 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:

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 other
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 Army District 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 3rd day of May, 1991,
