Adjacent to the Syracuse Customs Port of Entry 
 
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 County of Onondaga, New 
York, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 90, filed with the Foreign-Trade Zone 
Board (the Board) on February 1, 1985, requesting special-purpose subzone 
status for the typewriter manufacturing plant of SCM Corporation's Smith-
Corona operation, located in Cortland County, New York, adjacent to the 
Syracuse 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 Office 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 Cortland 
County, New York 
 
   Whereas, by an Act of Cong;ress 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 County of Onondaga, New York, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone
No. 90, has made application (filed February 1, 1985, Docket No. 3-85, 50 FR
5653) in due and proper form to the Board for authority to establish a 
special-purpose subzone at the typewriter manufacturing plant of SMC 
Corporations's  
 
Smith-Corona operation is Cortland County, New York, adjacent to the 
Syracuse 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 February 1, 1985,
the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at SMC 
Corporation's Smith-Corona typewriter plant in Cortland County, designated
on the records of the Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone No. 90A 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 4th day of April 1985, 
pursuant to Order of the Board. 
 
 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board. 
 
 
William T. Archey,
