Foreign-Trade Zone 50, Long Beach, CA; Application for Zone Site in Ontario,
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Board of Harbor Commissioners of the City of Long Beach
(BHC), grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 50, requesting authority to expand its
zone to include a site in Ontario, California, adjacent to the Los Angeles-
Long Beach 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
August 24, 1984. The applicant is authorized to make this proposal under
Sections 6300-6305 of the Government Code of California.
In September 1979, the Board authorized BHC to establish a foreign-trade
zone in the Los Angeles-Long Beach area (Board Order 147, 44 FR 55919,

Northwest Long Beach. BHC is also grantee of subzones for a Toyota truck
bed plant in Long Beach and the National Steel and Shipbuilding Company
shipyard in San Diego.
The proposed site is located in Ontario, San Bernadino County, adjacent
to the Ontario International Airport some 40 miles from the Port of Long
Beach. The new facility covers 1350 acres within a planned industrial-
commercial park owned and operated by Ontario International Partners.
In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The
committee consists of: Dennis Puccinelli (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones
Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C. 20230; Alice Rigdon,
