Approval for Relocation and Expansion of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 2, New 
Orleans, Louisiana 
 
TEXT: Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 
18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
Regulations (15 CFR Part 400), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) 
adopts the following order: 
 
   Whereas, the Board of Commissioners of the Port of New Orleans (the 
Port), grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 2 in New Orleans, Louisiana, has 
applied to the Board for authority to relocate its general-purpose zone to 
a site in the Almonaster-Michoud Industrial Park, New Orleans, within the 
New Orleans Customs port of entry; 
 
   Whereas, the application also requests a continuation of zone status at 
the existing zone facility in the Napolean Avenue Wharf area for a 
transitional period of five years; 
 
   Wheareas, the application was accepted for filing on September 12, 1983,
and notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register on 
September 19, 1983 (Docket No. 34-83, 48 FR 41802); 
 
   Whereas, an examiners committee has investigated the application in 
accordance with the Board's regulations and recommends approval;  
 
   Whereas, the relocation is neccessary to improve and expand zone 
services in the New Orleans area; and, 
 
   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Act, as amended, and the Board's regulations are satisfied, and that 
approval of the application is in the public interest; 
 
   Now, therefore, the Board hereby orders: 
 
   That the Grantee is authorized to relocate and expand its zone in 
accordance with the application filed September 12, 1983. The Grantee shall
notify the Executive Secretary of the Board for approval prior to the 
commencement of any manufacturing operations. The authority given in this 
Order is subject to settlement locally by the District Director of Customs 
and the District Army Engineer regarding compliance with their respective 
requirements relating to foreign-trade zones. 
 
   Signed at Washington, D.C. this 9th day of April, 1984. William T.
