Grant of Authority for Subzone Status; BMW Manufacturing
Corporation (Automobiles), Spartanburg County, SC, Greenville-
Spartanburg Customs Port of Entry

    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:
    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
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 existing zone facilities
cannot serve the specific use involved;
    Whereas, an application from the South Carolina State Ports
Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 38, for authorization of
special-purpose subzone status at the automobile manufacturing plant of
BMW Manufacturing Corporation in Spartanburg County, South Carolina,
was filed by the Board on July 19, 1993, and notice inviting public
comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 32-93, 58 FR
40623, 7-29-93); and,
    Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the FTZ Act
and 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 (Subzone 38A) at the BMW Manufacturing Corporation in
Spartanburg County, South Carolina, at the location described in the
application, subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations,
including Sec. 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 24th day of June 1994.
