TEXT: Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, D.C.  
 
 
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 Georgia Foreign-Trade Zone,
Inc., grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 26, filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones 
Board (the Board) on June 18, 1984, requesting special-purpose subzone 
status for the vehicle manufacturing plant of Ford Motor Company in 
Hapeville, Georgia, within the Atlanta 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 in Hapeville, GA, 
Within the Atlanta 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 Georgia Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of Foreign-Trade 
Zone No. 26, has made application (filed June 18, 1984, Docket No. 32-84, 
49 FR 26771) in due and proper form to the Board for authority to establish 
a special-purpose subzone at the auto manufacturing plant of Ford Motor 
Company in Hapeville, Georgia, within the Atlanta 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 June 18, 1984, 
the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at the Ford 
plant in Hapeville, Georgia, designated on the records of the Board as 
Foreign-Trade Subzone No. 26C 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.
