Resolution and Order Approving Application of Chicago Regional Port District
for a Special-Purpose Subzone in Chicago, Within Chicago 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 Chicago Regional Port 
District, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 22, filed with the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Board (the Board) on May 11, 1981, requesting a special-purpose 
subzone for the steel tube plant of the UNR-Leavitt Division, UNR 
Industries, Inc., within the Chicago Customs port of entry, the Board, 
finding that the public interest requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones 
Act, as amended, and the Board's regulations would be satisfied, and that 
the proposal would be in the public interest provided manufacturing under 
zone procedures is restricted to export, approves the application for the 
purpose of storing products, including foreign steel coil, and for the 
manufacture of electric-welded steel tubing for export.  
   The Grantee shall notify the Board's Executive Secretary for approval 
prior to the commencement of any additional manufacturing operations at the 
subzone site. The Secretary of Commerce, as Chairman and Executive Officer 
of the Board, is hereby authorized to issue an appropriate Board Order. 
Grant of Authority to Establish a Foreign-Trade Subzone in Chicago, 
Illinois, Within The Chicago 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 Chicago Regional Port District, grantee of Foreign-Trade 
Zone No. 22, has made application (filed May 11, 1983) in due and proper 
form to the Board requesting a special-purpose subzone at the steel tube 
manufacturing plant of the UNR-Leavitt Division of UNR Industries, Inc., 
located in Chicago, Illinois, within the Chicago 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 and that the proposal would be in the 
public interest if manufacturing operations are restricted to export;  
    Now, therefore, in accordance with the application filed May 11, 1981, 
the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at UNR-Leavitt's 
steel tube manufacturing facility in Chicago, designated on the records of 
the Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone No. 22A 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: 
    Zone procedures shall be used only for the purposes of storing 
imported steel and manufacturing electric resistance welded steel pipe and 
tubing for export. 
    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 5th day of July 1983 
pursuant to Order of the Board.
