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 Board of Harbor Commissioners
of the City of Long Beach, California, grantee of FTZ 50, filed with the
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on May 24, 1991, requesting special-
purpose subzone status at the high density digital tape recording equipment 
manufacturing plant of Datatape, Incorporated, in Pasadena, California, the 
Board, finding that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as 
amended, and the FTZ Board's regulations are satisfied, and that the 
proposal is in the public interest, approves the application.

Approval is subject to the FTZ Act and the FTZ Board's regulations (as
revised, 56 FR 50790-50808, 10/8/91), including section 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 for Subzone Status

Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To provide
for the establishment 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 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 existing zone facilities
cannot serve the specific use involved;

Whereas, the Board of Harbor Commissioners of the City of Long Beach,
California, grantee of FTZ 50, has made application (filed 5-24-91, FTZ
Docket 30-91, 56 FR 25661, 6-5-91) to the Board for authority to establish
a special- purpose subzone at the high density digital tape recording
equipment manufacturing plant of Datatape, Incorporated, in Pasadena, 
California;

Whereas, notice of said application has been given in the Federal Register
and public comment has been invited; and

Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the
Board's regulations are satisfied and that approval of the application is
in the public interest;

Now, therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone
at the Datatape, Incorporated, plant in Pasadena, California, designated on
the records of the Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone 50D, at the location
described in the application, subject to the Act and the Board's
Regulations (as revised, 56 FR 50790-50808, 10/8/91), including section 
400.28.

Signed at Washington, DC, this 13th day of July 1992, pursuant to Order of 
the Board.

Alan M. Dunn,

Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, 
Chairman, Committee of Alternates;
