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 Indianapolis Airport
Authority, grantee of FTZ 72, filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Board
(the Board) on October 15, 1991, and amended on October 5, 1992 (to
indicate steel mill products will not be admitted to the proposed subzone
in foreign status), requesting special-purpose subzone status for the
industrial control instrumentation manufacturing facility of Endress +
Hauser, Inc., in Greenwood, Indiana, the Board, finding that the
requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act and the Board's regulations are 
satisfied, and that the proposal, as amended, is in the public interest, 
approves the application, as amended.

The approval is subject to the FTZ Act and the FTZ Board's regulations (as
revised 56 FR 50790-50808, 10-8-91), including  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, an application from the Indianapolis Airport Authority, Grantee of
Foreign-Trade Zone No. 72, for authority to establish a special-purpose
subzone at the industrial control instrumentation manufacturing facility of
Endress + Hauser, Inc., in Greenwood, Indiana, was filed by the Board on
October 15, 1991, and notice inviting public comment was given in the
Federal Register on October 31, 1991 (FTZ Docket 60-91, 56 FR 56053,
10-31-91);

Whereas, the application was amended on October 5, 1992, to indicate that
steel mill products will not be admitted to the proposed subzone in foreign 
status; 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, as
amended, is in the public interest;

Now, Therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone
(Subzone 72J) at the Endress + Hauser, Inc., plant in Greenwood, Indiana,
at the location described in the application, subject 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 11th day of December, 1992, pursuant to
Order of the Board.
