                               (Docket 8-90)

 	Order No. 565; Approval for Certain Processing
                       Activity (Reprocessing Rubber)
                 Foreign-Trade Zone 122, Corpus Christi, TX

                         Wednesday, March 18, 1992

Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Act of June 
18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the 
Board) adopts the following order: 

After consideration of the request submitted by the Port of Corpus Christi
Authority, Grantee of FTZ #122 (filed 02/14/90), on behalf of Housmex,
Inc., for authority to use zone procedures to reprocess rubber within FTZ
122, the Board, finding that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones 
Act, as amended, and the Board's regulations would be satisfied, and that 
the proposal would be in the public interest if approval were given subject 
to a restriction requiring that privileged-foreign status (19 CFR 146.65) 
be elected on all foreign merchandise that is subject to Column 2 duty 
rates (non-MFN merchandise) at the time of admission to the zone, approves 
the request subject to the foregoing restriction.

The Secretary of Commerce, as Chairman and Executive Officers of the Board,
is hereby authorized to issue a grant of authority and appropriate Board 

This authority is granted subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's
regulations (as revised, 56 FR 50790-50808, 10/8/91), including  400.28,
and to all other conditions contained in Board Order 310 (50
FR 38020, 9/19/85), which authorized establishment of Foreign-Trade Zone
122, and in subsequent Board Orders issued in regard to the
general-purpose zone.

Signed at Washington, DC, this 11th day of March, 1992.

Alan M. Dunn,

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

John J. Du Ponte, Jr.,
