[Order No. 675]

Maytag Corp., Galesburg, Illinois; Application

    Pursuant to its authority under 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 Order: Removal of Restriction, Maytag
Corp., (Household Refrigerators), Subzone 133A, Galesburg, Illinois.
    Whereas, pursuant to Sec. 400.32(b)(1) of the Board's regulations,
the Maytag Corporation, operator of FTZ Subzone 133A in Galesburg,
Illinois (Maytag refrigerator manufacturing plant), has requested
removal of Restriction #2 of Board Order 448 (filed 6-4-93 as A(32b1)-
2-93; Doc. 61-93 was assigned 12-10-93);
    Whereas, Board Order 448 (54 FR 47246; 11-13-89) approving Subzone
133A included Restriction #2 requiring the election of privileged
foreign status on foreign compressors (the restriction was temporarily
suspended until 12-31-93, Board Order 485, 55 FR 37341, 9-11-90);
    Whereas, pursuant to Sec. 400.32(b)(1), the Commerce Department's
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration has the authority to act
for the Board in making decisions relating to changes in manufacturing/
processing activity within existing zones in situations where the
proposed activity is similar to that recently approved by the Board;
    Whereas, the FTZ Staff reviewed the proposal, pursuant to said
provision and found that there is no longer a reason for the
restriction, and the Executive Secretary concurs in the staff report
recommending approval;
    Now, therefore, the Acting Assistant Secretary for Import
Administration, acting for the Board pursuant to Sec. 400.32(b)(1),
concurs in the recommendation and hereby approves the request subject
to the Act and the Board's regulations, including Sec. 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 23rd day of December 1993.
Barbara R. Stafford,
Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration,
Chairman, Committee of Alternates, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
John J. Da Ponte, Jr.,
