   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:  
   After consideration of the application of the Indianapolis Airport

   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

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

   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 72, has made application (filed November 6, 1987, FTZ Docket 31-87, 52

special-purpose subzone at the automobile and pickup truck manufacturing 
plant of Subaru-Isuzu Automotive, Inc. (SIA), located in Tippecanoe County, 
Indiana (Lafayette 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 November 6, 
1987, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at the

described on the maps and drawings accompanying the application, said grant 
of authority being subject to the provisions and restrictions of the Act 
and regulations, and also to the following express conditions and 
   Activation of the subzone shall be commenced 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.
   Officers and employees of the United States shall have free and 
unrestricted access to and thoughout the foreign-trade subzone in the 
performance of their official duties. 
   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 subzone, 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 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
