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 (the 
Board) adopts the following Resolution and Order:

The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:

After consideration of the application of the Triangle J Council of 
Governments, grantee of FTZ 93, filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) on July 8, 1991, requesting special-purpose subzone status at 
the information processing and communications equipment manufacturing plant 
of International Business Machines Corporation, in the Raleigh/Durham, North
Carolina, area, the Board, finding that the requirements of the Foreign-
Trade Zones Act, as amended, and the FTZ Board's regulations are satisfied, 
and that the proposal is in the public interest, approves the application.

Approval is subject to the FTZ Act and the FTZ Board's regulations (as
revised, 56 FR 50790-50808, 10/8/91), including  400.28. 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 for Subzone Status; International Business Machines
Corporation Plant, Raleigh/Durhan, NC, Area

Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To provide
for the establishment 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 to grant to corporations the privilege of establishing 
foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to U.S. Customs ports of entry; 

Whereas, the Board's regulations (15 CFR part 400) provide for the
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities
cannot serve the specific use involved, and where a significiant public
benefit will result;

Whereas, the Triangle J Council of Governments, grantee of FTZ 93, has made
application (filed 7-8-91, FTZ Docket 40-91, 56 FR 34173, 7-26-91) to
the Board for authority to establish a special-purpose subzone at the
information processing and communications equipment manufacturing plant of
the International Business Machines Corporation located in the
Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina, 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 have been satisfied and that the proposal is in the
public interest;

Now, therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone
at the International Business Machines Corporation plant in the
Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina, area, designated on the records of the
Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone 93A, at the location described in the
application, subject to the Act and the Board's Regulations (as revised, 56
FR 50790-50808, 10/8/91), including  400.28.

Signed at Washington, DC, this 5th day of May, 1992, pursuant to Order of 
the Board.
