[Order No. 779]


Grant of Authority for Subzone Status, Uno-Ven Company (Oil
Refinery), Will County, IL

    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 Illinois International Port
District, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 22, for authority to establish
special-purpose subzone status at the oil refinery complex of UNO-VEN
Company, at sites in Will County, Illinois, was filed by the Board on
March 31, 1995, and notice inviting public comment was given in the
Federal Register (FTZ Docket 12-95, 60 FR 18579, 4-12-95); and,
    Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the FTZ Act
and Board's regulations would be satisfied, and that approval of the
application would be in the public interest if approval is subject to
the conditions listed below;
    Now, Therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a
subzone (Subzone 22I) at the UNO-VEN Company oil refinery complex, in
Will County, Illinois, at the locations described in the application,
subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including
Sec. 400.28, and subject to the following conditions:
