Industrial Corporation for a Foreign-Trade Subzone in St. Albans, Vt., 
Within the St. Albans Customs Port of Entry 
 
TEXT: Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, D.C.  
 
 
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 Greater Burlington 
Industrial Corporation, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 55, filed with the 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on June 25, 1981, requesting 
authority to establish a special-purpose subzone or the garment 
manufacturing facility of Pedigree USA, Inc., in St. Albans, Vermont, 
within the St. Albans 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 subject to the following conditions: (1) 
transformation of foreign merechandise resulting in a change of the 
country of origin is prohibited; (2) the operations shall be conducted in 
a manner compatible with the administration of textile and apparel quotas 
and visas.  
 
   As the proposal involves the possible construction of expanded facilities 
by parties other than the grantee, this approval includes authority to the 
grantee to permit such construction pursuant to section 400.815 of the 
Board's regulations, providing that prior to its granting 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 other than ornamenting and finishing of skiwear 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 of Authority to Establish a Foreign-Trade Subzone in St. Albans, 
Vermont, Within the St. Albans Customs Port of Entry 
 
   Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To 
provide for the establishment, operation, and maintenance of foeign-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 Board's regulations (15 C.F.R. 400.304) provide for the 
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities 
cannot serve the specific use involved, and where a significant public 
benefit will result; 
 
   Whereas, the Greater Burlington Industrial Corporation, grantee of 
Foreign-Trade Zone 55, Burlington, Vermont, has made application (filed 
June 25, 1981) indue and proper form to the Board for authority to 
establish a special-purpose subzone at the garment manufacturing facility 
of Pedigree USA, Inc. in St. Albans, Vermont, within the St. Albans Customs 
port of entry;  
 
   Whereas, notice of said application has been given and published, and 
full opportunity has been afforded all interested parties to be heard;  
 
   Whereas, the Board, pursuant to its authority to restrict or prohibit 
operations detrimental to the public interest (19 U.S.C. 81o), considered 
the possible impact of the proposed subzone on the Textile and Apparel 
Import Quota Program; and,  

   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the 
Board's regulations would be satisfied and that the proposal would be in 
the public interest if certain restrictions are adopted; 
 
   Now, therefore, in accordance with the application filed June 25, 1981, 
the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at the 
manufacturing facility of Pedigree USA, Inc. in St. Albans, Vermont, 
designated on the records of the Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone 55A at the 
location mentioned above and more particularly described on the maps and 
drawings accompanying the application, said grant of authority being 
subject to the provisions 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:
 
   Activation of subzone procedures at the facility shall be commenced 
within a resonable time from the date of issuance of the grant, and prior 
thereto, any necessary permits shall be obtained from Federal, State, and 
municipal authorities.  

   Any manufacturing at the facility which results in a change in the 
country of origin of foreign merchandise shall be prohibited. All 
operations within the subzone shall be conducted in a manner compatible 
with the administration of textile and apparel quotas and visas. 
 
   Officers and employees of the United States shall have free and 
unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade subzone in the 
performance of their official duties.  

   The grant shall not be construed to relieve responsible parties from 
liability for injury or damage to the person or property of others 
occasioned by the construction, operation, or maintenance of said subzone, 
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 District Army 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 facilities. 
 
   In 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 20th day of October 1982 
pursuant to Order of the Board.
