DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE
[Order No. 728]


Approval for Manufacturing Activity (Cellular Telephones--
Foreign-Trade Zone 168) Dallas, TX

    Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June
18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) (the Act), the Foreign-Trade
Zones Board (the Board) adopts the following order:
    Whereas, pursuant to Sec. 400.28(a)(2) of the Board's regulations,
approval is required prior to commencement of new manufacturing/
processing activity within existing zone facilities;
    Whereas, pursuant to Sec. 400.32(b)(1), the Commerce Department's
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration has authority to act for
the Board in making such decisions on new manufacturing/processing
activity under certain circumstances, including situations where the
proposed activity is the same as activity recently approved by the
Board (Sec. 400.32(b)(1)(i));
    Whereas, the Foreign-Trade Zone Operating Company of Texas,
operator of FTZ 168, Dallas, Texas, has made application (filed 12-5-
94, A(32b1)-5-94; Doc. 45-94, assigned 12/19/94) to the Board on behalf
of Nokia Mobile Phones Manufacturing (U.S.A.), Inc. (Nokia), and Nokia
Mobile Phones Trading (U.S.A.), Inc. (Nokia), for authority to
manufacture cellular telephones within FTZ 168;
    Whereas, the FTZ Staff has reviewed the proposal and finds that the
criteria for processing the proposal under Sec. 400.32(b)(1) would be
met and that (taking into account the criteria in Sec. 400.31(b)) the
proposal would be in the public interest, provided full zone benefits
are limited to certain components; and,
    Whereas, based on the foregoing review and pursuant to
Sec. 400.32(b)(1), the Executive Secretary recommends approval of the
proposal;
    Now, therefore, the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration
concurs in the recommendation and hereby approves the request for
manufacturing at the Nokia facilities within FTZ 168, subject to the
Act and the Board's Regulations, including Sec. 400.28, and subject to
a restriction requiring that privileged foreign status (19 CFR
Sec. 146.41) be elected on all foreign merchandise (subject to inverted
tariff duty rates) admitted to the zone for the Nokia operation, except
that non-privileged foreign status (19 CFR Sec. 146.42) may be elected
on the following components:
