Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 749]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status; Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.
(Distribution/Processing Facility), Bullock County, Georgia

    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 Savannah Airport Commission,
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 104 (Savannah, Georgia), for authority to
establish special-purpose subzone status at the distribution/processing
facility of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., located in Bulloch County, Georgia,
was filed by the Board on July 15, 1994, and notice inviting public
comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 27-94, 59 FR
39234, 8/2/94); and,
    Whereas, the application includes a request for authority to
assemble/process stereo systems and camera kits under zone procedures;
    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 104B) at the Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., facilities in
Bulloch County, Georgia, at the location described in the application,
subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including
Sec. 400.28. Approval includes authority to assemble/process stereo
systems (using domestic speakers) and camera kits. As indicated in the
application, no foreign textile products will be used in any processing
or manufacturing under zone procedures.
