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 Toledo-Lucas County Port 
Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 8, filed with the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Board (the Board) on June 6, 1983, requesting special-purpose subzone
status for the vehicle manufacturing facilities of Jeep Corporation in 
Toledo, Ohio, within the Toledo 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.

Board, is hereby authorized to issue a grant of authority and appropriate 
Board Order.   

 
Grant of Authority To Establish a Foreign-Trade Subzone in Toledo, Ohio, 
Within the Toledo Customs Port of Entry 
 
   Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, and 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 Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority, grantee of Foreign-
Trade Zone No. 8, Toledo, Ohio, has made application (filed June 6, 1983, 
Docket No. 20-83, 48 FR 27590) in due and proper form to the Board 
requesting a special-purpose subzone at the Jeep Corporation vehicle 
manufacturing facilities in Toledo, Ohio, within the Toledo Customs port 
of entry;  
 
   Whereas, notice of said application has been given and published, and 
full opportuntiy 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 June 6, 1983, 
the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at Jeep's 
Toledo, Ohio plant, designated on the records of the Board as Foreign-Trade
Subzone No. 8A 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 6th day of 
February 1984 pursuant to Order of the Board.
