General Electric Corporation in Jefferson County, KY 
 
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 Louisville and Jefferson 
County Riverport Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 29, filed with 
the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on December 7, 1984, requesting 
authority for a special-purpose subzone for the home appliance manufacturing
plant of General Electric Corporation in Jefferson County, Kentucky, 
adjacent to the Louisville Customs port of entry, the Board, finding that
the requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended, and the 
Board's regulations would be satisfied, and that the proposal would be in 
the public interest if approval is subject to certain conditions, approves
the application subject to the condition that any basic steel shape 
classifiable under Schedule 6, Part 2, Subpart B of TSUS and not 
incorporated into merchandise otherwise classified, shall be subject to 
Customs duty in accordance with applicable law if the same item, with 
comparable performance qualities and availability, is then being produced 
by a steel mill in the United States. 
 
   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 Electric
Corporation in Jefferson County, Kentucky, Adjacent to the Louisville 
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 Louisville and Jefferson County Riverport Authority, 
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 29, has made application (filed December 
7, 1984, Docket No. 54-84, 49 FR 48581) in due and proper form to the Board
for authority to establish a special-purpose subzone at the home appliance
manufacturing plant complex of General Electric Corporation, in Jefferson 
County, Kentucky, adjacent to the Louisville 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 7, 
1984, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at the 
home appliance manufacturing plant complex of General Electric Corporation
in Jefferson County, Kentucky, designated on the records of the Board as
Foreign-Trade Subzone No. 29C 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, those stated in the resolution
accompanying this action, 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 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 19th day of 
December 1985, pursuant to Order of the Board.
