   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:  
   After consideration of the application of the Indianapolis Airport 
Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zones 72, filed with the Foreign-Trade
Zones Board (the Board) on December 22, 1983, requesting special-purpose 
subzone status for the phamaceutical and chemical manufacturing plants of 
Eli Lilly and Company located in Indianapolis, Lafayette, and Clinton, 
Indiana, adjacent to the Indianapolis Customs port of entry, the Board,

Board Order.   
Grant of Authority To Establish Foreign-Trade Subzones in Indianapolis, 
   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 our 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, has made application (filed December 22, 1983, Docket 50-83, 
49 FR 471) in due and proper form to the Board for authority to establish 
special-purpose subzones at the pharmaceutical manufacturing plants of Eli 
Lilly and Company in Indianapolis, Lafayette, and Clinton, Indiana, adjacent
to the Indianapolis Customs port of entry area; 
   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 22, 
1983, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at Eli 
Lilly plants in Indianapolis, Lafayette, and Clinton, Indiana, designated 
on the records of the Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone Nos. 72B, 72C and 72D
at the locations 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 
   Activation of the subzones 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 subzones 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 subzones,
and in no event shall the United States be liable therefor. 
   The Executive Secretary shall be notified by the grantee or operator 
for approval prior to the commencement of any manufacturing operations not
approved as part of the application and when manufacturing activity is 
changed to include foreign items subject to inverted tariffs. 
   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 1985, pursuant to Order of the Board.
