   Approval for Expansion of Foreign-Trade Zone 106; Oklahoma City, OK  
TEXT: Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 USC 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
adopts the following Resolution and Order: 
   Whereas, the Port Authority of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Grantee of 
Foreign-Trade Zone 106, has applied to the Board for authority to expand 
its general-purpose zone at the Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City, 
within the Oklahoma City Customs port of entry, and for authority for 
manufacturing within the zone on behalf of the dialysis machine 
manufacturing operation of Organon Teknika Corporation (OTC); 
   Whereas, the application was accepted for filing on July 15 1987, and 
notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register on July 
31, 1987 (Docket 8-87, 52 FR 28581); 
   Whereas, an examiners committee has investigated the application in 
accordance with the Board's regulations and recommends approval;  
   Whereas, the expansion is necessary to improve and expand zone services
in the Oklahoma City area; and 
   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade
Zones Act, as amended, and the Board's regulations would be satisfied, and 
that approval of the application would be in the public interest, provided 
approval is subject to a restriction requiring OTC to elect privileged 
foreign status on all foreign components admitted to its zone manufacturing 
   Now, therefore, the Board hereby orders: 
   That, subject to the foregoing restriction on the OTC activity, the 
Grantee is authorized to expand its zone in accordance with the application 
filed July 15, 1987. The Grantee shall notify the Board for approval prior 
to the commencement of any additional manufacturing or assembly 
operations. The authority given in this Order is subject to settlement 
locally by the District Director of Customs and the District Army Engineer 
regarding compliance with their respective requirements relating to 
foreign-trade zones.  
   Signed at Washington, DC, this 7th day of December, 1989.
