Resolution and Order Approving the Application of the Port of Palm Beach 
District, for a Foreign-Trade Zone in Palm Beach County, FL  
 
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 Port of Palm Beach District,
a Florida public corporation, filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the
Board) on January 21, 1986, requesting a grant of authority for establishing,
operating, and maintaining a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in Palm 
Beach County, Florida, within the West Palm Beach 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. 
 
   As the proposal involves open space on which buildings may be constructed
by parties other than the grantee, this approval includes authority to the 
grantee to permit the erection of such buildings, pursuant to Section 
400.815 of the Board's regulations, as are necessary to carry out the zone
proposal, providing that prior to its granting such permission it shall have
the concurrences of the local District Director of Customs, the U.S. Army
District Engineer, when appropriate, and the Board's Executive Secretary. 
Further, the grantee shall notify the Board for approval prior to the 
commencement of any manufacturing operation within the zone. 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 
 
 
To Establish, Operate, and Maintain a Foreign-Trade Zone in Palm Beach 
County, Florida 
 
   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 Port of Palm Beach District (the Grantee), a Florida public 
corporation, has made application (filed January 21, 1986, Docket No. 2-86,
51 FR 3639) in due and proper form to the Board, requesting the 
establishment, operation, and maintenance of a foreign-trade zone at sites 
in Palm Beach County, Florida, within the West Palm Beach 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 (15 CFR Part 400) are satisfied; 
 
   Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants to the Grantee the privilege of 
establishing, operating and maintaining a foreign-trade zone, designated on
the records of the Board as Zone No. 135 at the locations mentioned above 
and more particularly described on the maps and drawings accompanying the
application in Exhibits IX and X, subject to the provisions, conditions, and
restrictions of the Act and the regulations issued therunder, to the same 
extent as though the same were fully set forth herein, and also to the 
following express conditions and limitations: 
 
   Operation of the foreign-trade zone shall be commenced by the Grantee 
within a reasonable time from the date of issuance of the grant, and prior
thereto the Grantee shall obtain all necessary permits from Federal, State,
and municipal authorities. 
 
   The Grantee shall allow officers and employees of the United States free
and unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade zone sites in 
the performance of their official duties. 
 
   The grant does not include authority for manufacturing operations, and
the Grantee shall notify the Board for approval prior to the commencement
of any manufacturing or assembly operations within the zone. 
 
   The grant shall not be construed to relieve the Grantee from liability
for injury or damage to the person or property of others occasioned by the
construction, operation, or maintenance of said zone, and in no event shall
the United States be liable therefor. 
 
   The grant is further subject to settlement locally by the Distict Director
of Customs and the Army District 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 facilites.
 
   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 at Washington, DC, this 16th day of March 1987, pursuant to Order 
of the Board.   
 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board, 
 
Malcolm Baldrige, 
 
   Chairman and Executive Officer.
