[Order No. 727]

Foreign-Trade Zones Board; Grant of Authority for Subzone Status;
Smithkline Beecham Corporation (Pharmaceuticals) Bristol, TN

    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 Industrial Board of Blount County,
Tennessee, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 148, for authority to
establish special-purpose subzone status at the pharmaceutical
manufacturing plant of SmithKline Beecham Corporation, in Bristol,
Tennessee, was filed by the Board on November 8, 1993, and notice
inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket
55-93, 58 FR 61065, 11-19-93); 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 148A) at the plant site of SmithKline Beecham
Corporation, in Bristol, Tennessee, 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 28th day of February 1995.
