DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE
Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 854]


Grant of Authority for Subzone Status, Zeneca Inc. (Agricultural
Chemicals), Mobile County, AL

    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 City of Mobile, Alabama, grantee
of Foreign-Trade Zone 82, for authority to establish special-purpose
subzone status at the agricultural chemical manufacturing plant of
Zeneca Inc., located in Mobile County, Alabama, was filed by the Board
on March 11, 1996, and notice inviting public comment was given in the
Federal Register (FTZ Docket 20-96, 61 FR 11608, 3/21/96); and,
    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the
examiner's report, and finds 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 82E) at the Zeneca Inc. plant in Mobile County,
Alabama, at the location described in the application, subject to the
FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Sec. 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 4th day of November 1996.
Robert S. LaRussa,
Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration,
Alternate Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
