                              (Order No. 571)

  Berg Steel Pipe Corp., Foreign-Trade Zone 65, Panama City, FL; Approval
              Restriction Extension of Manufacturing Authority

                           Monday, April 6, 1992

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: 

Whereas, the Panama City Port Authority (PCPA), Grantee of Foreign-Trade
Zone (FTZ) 65, Panama City, Florida, applied to the Board for an indefinite
extension of Berg Steel Pipe Corporation's (BSPC) authority to use zone
procedures for its steel pipe manufacturing opertions at its plant within 
FTZ 65;

Whereas, the application was accepted for filing on May 30, 1990, and
notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register on June
13, 1990 (Docket No. 21-90, 55 FR 23955);

Whereas, BSPC was given authority to manufacture pipe in FTZ 65 for a
period of five years when the zone was approved in 1981 (Board Order 171,
46 FR 8072);

Whereas, BSPC's authority to manufacture under zone procedures has been
extended three times, the last extension to March 31, 1992 (Board Order
490, 5 FR 40697);

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 a restriction;

Now, Therefore, the Board hereby orders that BSPC is authorized to use zone
procedures for its steel pipe manufacturing operations in FTZ 65 subject to
a restriction requiring that any foreign steel mill product admitted to the
BSPC zone operation shall be subject to the same restrictions and
requirements relating to special government agreements or programs as are
applicable to steel products entered directly into U.S. Customs territory
from abroad, and 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 30th day of March 1992, pursuant to Order of
the Board.
