The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:

After consideration of the application of the County of Monroe, New York,

October 2, 1990, requesting special-purpose subzone status at the automobile 
parts manufacturing plant of General Motors Corporation, Delco Products 
Division, located in Rochester, New York, the Board, finding that the

Grant of Authority To Establish a Foreign-Trade Subzone in Rochester, NY

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 Part 400) 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 County of Monroe, New York, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 
141, has made application (filed October 2, 1990, FTZ Docket 39-90, 55 FR 
43018, 10/25/90) in due and proper form to the Board for authority to 
establish a special-purpose subzone at the automobile components 
manufacturing plant of General Motors Corporation, Delco Products Division, 
located in Rochester, New York;

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 October 2, 1990,
the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at the GM/Delco
plant in Rochester, New York, designated on the records of the Board as
Foreign-Trade Subzone No. 141C 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 same
extent as though the same were fully set forth herein, 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 therefore.

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 16th day of December, 1991, 
pursuant to Order of the Board.
