Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones  Board, Washington, D.C.

Resolution and Order

Pursuant to the authority under 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 Port of Portland, grantee of
Foreign-Trade Zone 45, filed with the  Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Board (the 
Board) on November 6, 1991, requesting special-purpose subzone status for 
export activity at the stainless steel tubing plant of Tofle U.S.A., Inc., 
in Tualatin, Oregon, adjacent to the Portland Customs port of entry, the 
Board, finding that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones  Act and the
Board's regulations are satisfied, and that the proposal is in the public 
interest, approves the application.

The approval is subject to the FTZ Act and the FTZ Board's regulations (as
revised, 56 FR 50790-50808, 10-8-91), including Section 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.

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;

Whereas, an application from the Port of Portland (Oregon), grantee of
Foreign-Trade Zone 45, for authority to establish a special-purpose subzone
for export activity at the stainless steel tubing plant of Tofle U.S.A.,
Inc., located in Tualatin, Oregon, was filed by the Board on November 6,
1991, and notice was given in the Federal Register on November 27, 1992
inviting public comment (FTZ Docket 75-91, 56 FR 60087); and,

Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the
Board's regulations are satisfied and that the proposal is in the public
interest;

Now, Therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone
(Subzone 45E) for export activity at the stainless steel tubing plant of
Tofle U.S.A., Inc., in Tualatin, Oregon, at the location described in the
application, subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations (as
revised, 56 FR 50790-50808, 10-8-91), including Section 400.28.

Signed at Washington, DC, this 29th day of December, 1992, pursuant to
Order of the Board.

Alan M. Dunn,

Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Chairman,
Committee of Alternates 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
