Authority for a Special-Purpose Foreign-Trade Subzone for General Motors in 
Kokomo, IN, Adjacent to the Indianapolis Customs Port of Entry; Proceedings
of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, DC 
 
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 Indianapolis Airport 
Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 72 in Indianapolis, filed December
1, 1983 with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) requesting special-
purpose subzone status for the auto electronics manufacturing plant of 
General Motors Corporation's Delco Division, located in Kokomo, Indiana, 
adjacent to the Indianapolis 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 for General Motors 
in Kokomo, Indiana, Adjacent to the Indianapolis 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 Indianapolis Airport Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade 
Zone No. 72 in Indianapolis, has made application (filed December 1, 1983, 
Docket No. 44-83, 48 FR 55890) in due and proper form to the Board for 
authority to establish a special-purpose subzone at General Motors 
Corporation's Delco Electronics Division auto electronic products 
manufacturing facilities in Kokomo, Indiana, adjacent to the Indianapolis 
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 December 1, 
1983, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at the 
General Motors-Delco Division plant in Kokomo, Indiana, designated on the 
records of the Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone No. 72A 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 State 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 26th day of 
July 1984 pursuant to Order of the Board.
