Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 851]

Grant of Authority; Establishment of a Foreign-Trade Zone, St.
Lucie County, Florida

    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 Central Florida Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc. (the
Grantee), a Florida not-for-profit corporation, has made application to
the Board (FTZ Docket 49-95, 60 FR 47148, 9/11/95), requesting the
establishment of a foreign-trade zone at sites in St. Lucie County,
Florida, within the limits of the Fort Pierce U.S. Customs Station;
    Whereas, notice inviting public comment has been given in the
Federal Register, and the Board adopts the findings and recommendations
of the examiner's report and finds that the requirements of the Act and
the Board's regulations are satisfied, and that approval of the
application is in the public interest;
    Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants to the Grantee the
privilege of establishing a foreign-trade zone, designated on the
records of the Board as Foreign-Trade Zone No. 218, at the sites
described in the application, subject to the Act and the Board's
regulations, including Section 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 24th day of October 1996.
