Foreign-Trade Zones Board
Foreign-Trade Zone 9 -- Honolulu, HI; Application for Expansion
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the
Board) by the Hawaii Department of Planning and Economic Development, on
behalf of the State of Hawaii, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 9, requesting
authority to expand its foreign-trade zone to include an industrial park
site in Ewa, Hawaii, adjacent to the Honolulu 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 September 10, 1985.
On February 15, 1965, the State of Hawaii received authority from the
Board to establish a foreign-trade zone in the Honolulu area (Board Order
65, 30 FR 2377, 2/20/65). Relocated in April 1982 (Board Order 188, 47 FR
18014, 4/15/82), the general-purpose zone currently involves warehousing
facilities on 17 acres at Pier 2 on Honolulu Harbor. The zone project also
includes 3 subzones.
The proposed expansion site would be located at the 2800-acre James
Campbell Industrial Park located on Kalaeloa Boulevard off H-1 Highway in
Ewa, some 22 miles west of downtown Honolulu. The site will be operated by
Campbell Estate which owns and manages the industrial park. Subzone 9A
(Hawaiian Independent Refinery) is already located within the park.
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; George Roberts,
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, Pacific Region, P.O. Box 1641,
