Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 695]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status for Two Plants of Alps
Manufacturing (USA), Inc. (Computer/Telecommunications/Video Equipment
and Auto Electronic Parts); Garden Grove and Compton, CA, Los Angeles/
Long Beach Port of Entry Area

    ``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:
    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 Board of Harbor Commissioners of
the City of Long Beach, California, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 50,
for authority to establish special-purpose subzone status at the
computer/telecommunications/video equipment and auto electronic parts
manufacturing facilities of Alps Manufacturing (USA), Inc., in Garden
Grove and in Compton, California, was filed by the Board on August 16,
1993, and notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal
Register (FTZ Docket 45-93, 58 FR 46627, 9-2-93); and,
    Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the FTZ 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 50E) at the plant sites of Alps Manufacturing (USA),
Inc., in Garden Grove and in Compton, California (Los Angeles/Long
Beach port of entry area), at the locations described in the
application, subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations,
including Sec. 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 11th day of August 1994.

Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Chairman,
