DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE

Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 795]


Grant of Authority for Subzone Status SGS-Thomson
Microelectronics, Inc. (Semiconductors); Phoenix, AZ

    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 City of Phoenix, Arizona, grantee
of Foreign-Trade Zone 75, for authority to establish special-purpose
subzone status at the semiconductor manufacturing plant of SGS-Thomson
Microelectronics, Inc., in Phoenix, Arizona, was filed by the Board on
May 25, 1995, and notice inviting public comment was given in the
Federal Register (FTZ Docket 26-95, 60 FR 28574, 6/1/95); 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 75D) at the SGS-Thomson Microelectronics, Inc., plant
in Phoenix, Arizona, at the locations described in the application,
subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including
Sec. 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 12th day of December 1995.
Susan G. Esserman,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
