Resolution and Order Approving the Application of the Tri-City Regional 
Port District for a Special-Purpose Subzone in Fenton, Missouri, Within the 
St. Louis Customs Port of Entry; 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 Tri-City Regional Port 
District, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 31, Granite City, Illinois, filed 
with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on July 30, 1982, requesting 
authority for a special-purpose subzone at the automobile assembly plant of 
Chrysler Corporation in Fenton, Missouri, within the St. Louis 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. 
 
   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 Fenton, Missouri, 
Within the St. Louis 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 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 Board's regulations (15 CFR 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 Tri-City Regional Port District, Grantee of Foreign-Trade 
Zone No. 31, Granite City, Illinois, has made application (filed July 30, 
1982) in due and proper form to the Board requesting a special-purpose 
subzone at  Chrysler Corporation's auto assembly plant in Fenton, Missouri, 
within the St. Louis 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; and 
 
   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the 
Board's regulations are satisfied; 
 
   Now, Therefore, in accordance with the application filed July 30, 1982, 
the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at the Fenton, 
Missouri, auto assembly plant of Chrysler Corporation, designated on the 
records of the Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone No. 31A 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 the subzone shall be commenced within a reasonable time 
from the date of issuance of the grant, and prior thereto, any necessary 
permits shall be obtained from Federal, State, and municipal authorities.
 
   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 or his delegate at Washington, D.C. this 24th day of 
January 1983 pursuant to Order of the Board. 
 
 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
