Authority for Special-Purpose Subzones at Three Chrysler Corp. Plants in 
the Indianapolis, IN, Area 
TEXT: Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, DC  
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 Indianapolis Airport Authority, 
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 72, filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) on May 28, 1985, requesting special-purpose subzone status for 
three automobile components manufacturing plants in the Indianapolis 
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 Foreign-Trade Subzones at Chrysler 
Corporation Plants in the Indianapolis, IN Area 
   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 Indianapolis Airport Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade 
Zone No. 72, has made application (filed May 28, 1985, Docket 13-85, 50 
FR 23752) in due and proper form to the Board for authority to establish 
special-purpose subzones at auto component manufacturing plants of Chrysler
Corporation in Indianapolis, Kokomo, and New Castle, Indiana, adjacent to 
the Indianapolis 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 May 28, 1985, 
the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of subzones at Chrysler plants
in Indianapolis, Kokomo, and New Castle, Indiana, designated on the records
of the Board as Foreign-Trade Subzones Nos. 72E, 72F and 72G, 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 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 grant is further subject to settlement locally by the District 
Director of Customs and District Army Engineers 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, DC this 15th day of January 1986, 
pursuant to Order of the Board.
