Ports Authority for Special-Purpose Subzone Status at the Haarmann and

Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, DC
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 South Carolina State Ports
Authority, grantee of FTZ 21, filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the
Board) on August 14, 1990, requesting special-purpose subzone status at the
flavor and fragrance chemicals plant of Haarmann & Reimer Corporation in
Goose Creek, South Carolina (Charleston area), the Board, finding that the
requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended, and the FTZ Board's
regulations would be satisfied, and that the proposal would be in the public
interest if approval is limited to activity relating to the manufacture of
the products specifically listed in the Federal Register notice announcing
the filing of the application and inviting public comment (55 FR 35160,
8/28/90), approves the application, subject to the foregoing condition.
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; Haarmann and Reimer Corp.
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 South Carolina State Ports Authority, grantee of FTZ 21, has
made application (filed 8-14-90, FTZ Docket 34-90, 55 FR 35160, 8-28-90) to
the Board for authority to establish a subzone at the flavor and fragrance
chemicals processing plant of Haarmann and Reimer Corporation, Goose Creek,
South Carolina within the Charleston port of entry area;
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 would be satisfied, and that approval of the
application would be in the public interest if approval were limited to the
specific activity announced in the Federal Register notice on the
application (55 FR 35160, 8/28/90);
Now, therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone
(Subzone 21B) at the Haarmann and Reimer Corporation plant in Goose Creek,
South Carolina, at the location described in the application, for
manufacture of the products specifically listed in the application and
announced in the Federal Register notice referred to above, 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 10th day of August, 1992, pursuant to Order
of the Board.
Alan M. Dunn,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration,
Chairman, Committee of Alternates
Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
