Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 858]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status; Abbott Manufacturing,
Inc.(Infant Formula, Adult Nutritional Products), Casa Grande, AZ

    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 Phoenix, Arizona, grantee
of Foreign-Trade Zone 75, for authority to establish special-purpose
subzone status for export activity at the infant formula and adult
nutritional products manufacturing plant of Abbott Manufacturing, Inc.,
in Casa Grande, Arizona, was filed by the Board on January 22, 1996,
and notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register
(FTZ Docket 7-96, 61 FR 3669, 2-1-96); 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
for export manufacturing is in the public interest;
    Now, Therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a
subzone (Subzone 75E) at the Abbott Manufacturing, Inc., plant in Casa
Grande, Arizona, at the location described in the application, subject
to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Sec. 400.28, and
subject to the further requirement that all foreign-origin dairy
products and sugar admitted to the subzone shall be reexported.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 5th day of December 1996.
Robert S. LaRussa,
Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration,
Alternate Chairman Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
