Foreign-Trade Zone 106, Oklahoma City, OK; Application for Expansion  
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Port Authority of Oklahoma City (Port Authority), 
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 106, requesting authority to expand the zone 
to include 4 sites in Oklahoma City, within the Oklahoma City Customs port 
of entry. The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the 
Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations
of the Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was formally filed on July 15, 1987 
   On September 14, 1984, the Board authorized the Port Authority to 
establish a foreign-trade zone in Oklahoma City (Board Order 271, 49 FR 
37133, 9/21/84). The project currently covers 640 acres at the Will Rogers
World Airport.  
   The expansion would involve a privately-owned site and 3 tracts of airport
property totalling 236 acres. The three airport tracts are designated as 
Tracts 1, 3, and 5. The private site is owned by Aero-Meridan Corp. and 
consists of a 100,000 sq. ft. warehouse and 6 acres of land located at 3501
Melcat Drive in the Lakeside Business Park. Tract 1 of the 3-tract airport
property is 143 acres at SW. 59th St. and Portland Ave., adjacent to the 
northwest corner of the existing zone. Tract 3 is 31 acres at Highway 152 
and MacArthur Blvd. and Tract 5 is 62 acres at Portland Ave. and Highway 62.
   A manufacturing operation for Organon Teknika, a manufacturer of medical 
devices, is also included in the application. The company produces dialysis 
machines, absorbent cartridges and spare parts for all manufactured devices,
employing 200 workers. Materials sourced abroad include chemicals, medical 
equipment, dialyzers and disposable blood sets. Manufacturing under zone 
procedures would be for export only. 
   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has 
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The
