   Resolution and Order Approving the Application of the Greater Dayton 
Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., for Special-Purpose Subzones at General Motors 
Plants in Dayton and Kettering, OH; Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones 
Board, Washington, DC 
 
TEXT: 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 (the 
Board) has adopted the following Resolution and Order: 
 
   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:  
 
   After consideration of the application of the Greater Dayton Foreign-
Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 100, filed with the Foreign-
Trade Zones Board (the Board) on June 28, 1988, requesting special-purpose 
subzone status at the industrial motors and automotive components plants of 
the Delco Products Division of General Motors Corporation, located in 
Dayton and Kettering, Ohio, adjacent to the Dayton 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 provided that privileged foreign 
status is elected on any foreign merchandise subject to antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders upon their admission to the plants, approves the 
application, subject to the foregoing condition. 
 
   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 the General Motors Plants in Dayton 
and Kettering, Ohio 
 
   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 Greater Dayton Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of 
Foreign-Trade Zone 100, has made application (filed June 28, 1988, FTZ 
Docket 24-88, 53 FR 25647) in due and proper form to the Board for 
authority to establish special-purpose subzones at plants of General Motors 
Corporation (Delco Products Division) located in Dayton and Kettering, 
Ohio, adjacent to the Dayton 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 would be satisfied and that the proposal would be in the 
public interest if approval were given subject to the restriction in the 
resolution accompanying this action; 
 
   Now, Therefore, in accordance with the application filed June 28, 1988, 
the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at the General 
Motors plants in Dayton and Kettering, Ohio, designated on the records of 
the Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone Nos. 100A and 100B 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 regulations issued thereunder, 
to the restriction in the resolution accompanying this action, 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 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 throughout the foreign-trade subzones 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 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 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 
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 at Washington, DC, this 9th day of November 1989, pursuant to Order 
of the Board.
