Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, DC.

Resolution and Order

Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 18,
1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the 
Board) adopts the following Resolution and Order:

The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:

After consideration of the application of the Culpeper-County Chamber of
Commerce, Inc., filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on May 
25, 1990, and amended on August 2, 1991, requesting a grant of authority to 
establish a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in Culpeper County, Virginia,
adjacent to the Front Royal Customs port of entry, and for subzone status at
the ITT Teves plant and the Rochester Corporation plant in Culpeper County, 
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 as amended, would be in the public interest if approval of the
general-purpose zone is limited to the Montanus site and if approval of
subzone status for the Rochester plant is given subject to a restriction
requiring that privileged foreign status shall be elected on all foreign 
merchandise admitted to that subzone site, approves the application, subject 
to the foregoing limitation and restriction.

Approval is subject to the FTZ Act and FTZ Board's regulations (as revised,
56 FR 50790-50808, 10/8/91), inclduing  400.28. The Secretary of Commerce,
as Chairman and Executive Officer of the Board, is hereby authorized to
issue a grant of authority and appropriate Board Order.

Grant of Authority to Establish a Foreign-Trade Zone and Special-Purpose
Subzones Culpeper County, VA

Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To provide
for the stablishment 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 to grant to qualified corporations the privilege of 
establishing foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to U.S. Customs ports of 
entry;

Whereas, the Board's regulations (15 CFR part 400) provide for the
establishment of special-purpose subzones when general-purpose zone
facilities cannot serve the specific use involved, and where a significant
public benefit will result;

Whereas, the Culpeper-County Chamber of Commerce, Inc. (the Grantee), a
Virginia non-profit corporation, has made application (filed 5-25-90, FTZ
Docket 20-90, 55 FR 23119, 6-6-90) to the Board, requesting the
establishment of a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in Culpeper,
Virginia, adjacent to the Front Royal Customs port of entry, and requesting
subzone status at the ITT Corporation, ITT Teves Division plant (auto brake
components) and at the Rochester Corporation plant (steel and fiber optic
cable), located in Culpeper County;

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 would be satisfied and that the proposal would be in
the public interest if approval were given subject to the limitation and
restriction in the resolution accompanying this action;

Now, Therefore, the Board hereby grants to the Grantee the privilege of
establishing a general-purpose foreign-trade zone, designated on the
records of the Board as Foreign-Trade Zone 185, at the Montanus site
described in the application, and special-purpose subzone status at the ITT
Teves plant and at the Rochester Corporation plant designated as Subzone
Nos. 185A and 185B, respectively, at the locations described in the
application, subject to the limitation and restriction described in the
resolution accompanying this action, and to the FTZ Act and the Board's
regulations (as revised, 56 FR 50790-50808, 10-8-91), including  400.28.

Signed at Washington, DC, this 22 day of May, 1992, pursuant to Order of
the Board.
Foreign-Trade Zones Board.

Secretary of Commerce, Chairman and Executive Officer.
