   Approval for Expansion of Foreign-Trade Zone 50; Los Angeles-Long Beach, 
CA, Area 
TEXT: Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the Foreign-Trade Zones 
Board Regulations (15 CFR part 400), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the 
Board) adopts the following Resolution and Order: 
   Whereas, the Board of Harbor Commissioners of the City of Long Beach, 
California, Grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 50, which involves sites in 
Long Beach, Santa Ana, and Ontario, California, has applied to the Board 
for authority to expand its general-purpose zone site in Ontario, 
California, adjacent to the Los Angeles-Long Beach Customs port of entry;
   Whereas, the application was accepted for filing on March 27, 1989, and 
notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register on April 
18, 1989 (Docket 3-89, 54 FR 15479); 
   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 Los Angeles-Long Beach area; and 
   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Act, as amended, and the Board's regulations are satisfied, and that 
approval of the application is in the public interest; 
   Now, therefore, the Board hereby orders: 
   That the Grantee is authorized to expand its Ontario zone site, subject 
to the condition that any activation of approved zone space at the Ontario 
zone site beyond 1,350 acres requires further Board approval. 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. 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 19th day of December 1990.
