Baltimore Maryland; Resolution and Order Approving Application Proceedings 
of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, D.C. 
TEXT: Resolution and Order 
   Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones 
Board has adopted the following Resolution and Order: 
   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:  
   After consideration of the application of the City of Baltimore, 
Maryland, filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on August 
17, 1981, requesting a grant of authority for establishing, operating, and 
maintaining a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in Baltimore, within the 
Baltimore Customs port of entry, the Board, finding that the requirements 
of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended, and the Board's regulations 
are satisfied, and that the proposal is in the public interest, approves 
the application.  
   As the proposal involves open space on which buildings may be 
constructed by parties other than the grantee, this approval includes 
authority to the grantee to permit the erection of such buildings, 
pursuant to @ 400.815 of the Board's regulations, as are necessary to 
carry out the zone proposal, providing that prior to its granting such 
permission it shall have the concurrences of the local District Director 
of Customs, the U.S. Army District Engineer, when appropriate, and the
Board's Executive Secretary. Further, the grantee shall notify the Board's 
Executive Secretary for approval prior to the commencement of any 
manufacturing operation within the zone. The Secretary of Commerce, as 
Chairman and Executive Officer of the Board, is hereby authorized to 
issue a grant of authority and appropriate Board Order. 
Grant To Establish, Operate, and Maintain a Foreign-Trade Zone In 
Baltimore, MD.   

   Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To 
provide for the establishment, operation, and maintenance 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 and 
empowered to grant to corporations the privilege of establishing, 
operating, and maintaining foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to ports of 
entry under the jurisdiction of the United States;   

   Whereas, the City of Baltimore, Maryland (the Grantee) has made 
application (filed August 17, 1981) in due and proper form to the Board, 
requesting the establishment, operation, and maintenance of a foreign-trade 
zone in  Baltimore, within the Baltimore Customs port of entry; 
   Whereas, notices of said applications has been given and published, and 
full opportunity has been afforded all interested parties to be heard; and,
   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the 
Board's regulations (15 CFR Part 400) are satisfied; 
   Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants to the Grantee the privilege of
establishing, operating, and maintaining a foreign-trade zone, designated 
on the records of the Board as Zone No. 74 at the location mentioned above 
and more particularly described on the maps and drawings accompanying the 
application in Exhibits IX and X, subject to the provisions, conditions, 
and restrictions of the Act and the regulations issued thereunder, to the 
same extent as though the same were fully set forth herein, and also to 
the following express conditions and limitations: 
   Operation of the foreign-trade zone shall be commenced by the Grantee 
within a reasonable time from the date of issuance of the grant, and prior 
thereto the Grantee shall obtain all necessary permits from Federal, 
State, and municipal authorities. 
   The Grantee shall allow officers and employees of the United States free 
and unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade zone site in 
the performance of their official duties. 
   The Grantee shall notify the Executive Secretary of the Board for 
approval prior to the commencement of any manufacturing operations within 
the zone.   

   The grant shall not be construed to relieve the Grantee from liability 
for injury or damage to the person or property of others occasioned by the 
construction, operation, or maintenance of said zone, and in no event 
shall the United States be liable therefor. 
   The grant is further subject to settlement locally by the District 
Director of Customs and the Army District Engineer with the Grantee 
regarding compliance with their respective requirements for the protection 
of the revenue of the United States and the installation of suitable 
   Im witness whereof, the Foreign-Trade Zones Board has caused its name 
to be signed and its seal to be affixed hereto by its Chairman and 
Executive Officer at Washington, D.C. this 21st day of January 1982, 
pursuant to Order of the Board.
