[Order No. 679]

SmithKline Beecham Pharmaceuticals Co., Cidra, Puerto Rico;

    Pursuant to its 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 Order: Grant of authority for subzone
status, SmithKline Beecham Pharmaceuticals Co., (Pharmaceutical
Products), Cidra, Puerto Rico.
    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
qualified 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 Puerto Rico Commercial and Farm
Credit and Development Corporation, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 61
(San Juan, Puerto Rico), for authority to establish a special-purpose
subzone at the pharmaceutical manufacturing plant of SmithKline Beecham
Pharmaceuticals Company, located in Cidra, Puerto Rico, was filed by
the Board on January 15, 1993, and notice inviting public comment was
given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 1-93, 58 FR 7529, 2-8-93);
    Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and
Board's regulations are satisfied, and that approval of the application
is in the public interest;
    Now, therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a
subzone (Subzone 61C) at the SmithKline Beecham Pharmaceuticals Company
plant in Cidra, Puerto Rico, at the location described in the
application, subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations,
including Sec. 400.28.
