Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 899]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status Sitix of Phoenix, Inc. 
(Semiconductor Wafers) Phoenix, 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 FTZ 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 the semiconductor wafer manufacturing plant of Sitix 
of Phoenix, Inc., located in Phoenix, Arizona, was filed by the Board 
on January 16, 1996, and notice inviting public comment was given in 
the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 2-96, 61 FR 1747, 1-23-96; comment 
period extended, 61 FR 25189, 5-20-96); 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 grants authority for subzone 
status at the Sitix of Phoenix, Inc., plant in Phoenix, Arizona 
(Subzone 75G), at the location described in the application, subject to 
the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Sec. 400.28. The 
authority for the manufacturing activity described in the application 
record is limited to the scope of such activity that is planned for the 
facility as constructed (352,000 sq. ft.).

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 25th day of June 1997.
Robert S. LaRussa,
Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, 
Alternate Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
