Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 717]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status; Zeneca Inc. 
(Pharmaceuticals) Newark, DE

    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 Delaware Development Office, on 
behalf of the State of Delaware, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 99, for 
authority to establish special-purpose subzone status at the 
pharmaceutical manufacturing plant of Zeneca Inc., in Newark, Delaware, 
was filed by the Board on June 22, 1994, and notice inviting public 
comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 26-94, 59 FR 
35095, 7-8-94); 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 99D) at the plant site of Zeneca Inc., in Newark, 
Delaware, at the location described in the application, subject to the 
FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Sec. 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 2nd day of December 1994.
Susan G. Esserman,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate 
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
