Foreign-Trade Zone 49; Newark/Elizabeth, New Jersey; Application for 
Expansion  
 
TEXT: Notice is hereby given that an application has been submitted to the
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Port Authority of New York and 
New Jersey (the Port Authority), grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 49, 
Newark/Ellizabeth, New Jersey, requesting authority to expand the zone to 
include the entire Port Newark/Elizabeth Port Authority Marine Terminal on 
Newark Bay, within the New York City Customs port of entry. The application 
was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, 
as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR 
Part 400). It was formally filed on January 11, 1982. The applicant is 
authorized to make this proposal under Section 12:13-1 of the New Jersey 
Statutes Annotated.  
 
   On April 6, 1979, the Port Authority received from the Board authority 
to establish a foreign-trade zone facility within the 2,200-acre marine 
terminal complex, consisting of two general-purpose buildings totaling 
200,000 square feet (Board Order 146, 44 FR 22502, 4-16-79). The zone 
became operational in April 1981 and is expected to be fully occupied in 
the near future. This application requests the designation of the entire 
complex as a zone so that the Port Authority has additional space and 
flexibility in meeting the growing demand for zone services. 
 
   The application indicates a need for two million square feet of 
additional zone space for a variety of operations which cannot presently 
be accommodated. Prospective uses include storage, distribution, processing 
and assembly of industrial machinery, automobiles, motorcycles, electrical 
equipment, electronic components, household goods, luggage, and apparel. 
The Port Authority has not been able to plan the location of the new 
prospects within one section of the complex because of their individual 
needs. This proposal is based uon the fact that the clustering of users is 
not feasible and that the terminal complex is operated as an integrated 
and secured facility. Sites would be activated as needed after necessary 
improvements are made and Customs approval obtained.  
 
   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an Examiners Committee has 
been appointed to investigate the application and report thereon to the 
Board. The committee consists of John J. Da Ponte, Jr., (Chairman), 
Director, Foreign-Trade Zones Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, 
Washington, D.C. 20230; Benjamin C. Jefferson, Newark Area Director, U.S. 
Customs Service, Region II, Airport International Plaza, Room 210A, Newark, 
New Jersey 07114; and Colonel Walter M. Smith, Jr., District Engineer, 
U.S. Army Engineer District New York, 26 Federal Plaza, New York, New 
York 10278. 
 
   Comments concerning the proposed zone expansion are invited in writing 
from interested persons and organizations. They should be addressed to the 
Board's Executive Secretary at the address below and postmarked on or 
before February 22, 1982
