[Order No. 736]

Approval of Manufacturing Activity Columbus Industries, Inc. (Air
Filters) Within Foreign-Trade Zone 138 Columbus, Ohio

    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: [[Page 26716]]
    Whereas, the Board's regulations require Board approval prior to
commencement of new manufacturing/processing activity within existing
zone facilities;

    Whereas, the Rickenbacker Port Authority, grantee of FTZ 138, has
requested authority under Sec. 400.32(b)(1) of the Board's regulations
on behalf of Columbus Industries, Inc., to manufacture air filters
under zone procedures within FTZ 138, Columbus, Ohio (filed 4/29/94,
FTZ Docket A(32b1)-1-94; amended 8/9/94; Doc. 11-95, assigned 3/29/95);

    Whereas, pursuant to said provision, the Commerce Department's
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration has the authority to act
for the Board in making such decisions in situations where the incoming
merchandise for the proposed activity is admitted in foreign-privileged
status (Sec. 400.32(b)(1)(iii));

    Whereas, the request, as amended, states that Columbus Industries
will pay full duties on all merchandise admitted to the zone for its
use in the manufacture of products for the domestic market (e.g., no
duty exemption will be claimed for scrap and waste); and

    Whereas, the FTZ Staff has reviewed the proposal, taking into
account the criteria of Sec. 400.31, and the Executive Secretary has
recommended approval;

    Now, Therefore, the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration,
acting for the Board pursuant to Sec. 400.32(b)(1), concurs in the
recommendation and hereby approves the request, as amended, subject to
the Act and the Board's regulations, including Sec. 400.28, and subject
to the further requirement that all merchandise admitted to the zone
for the Columbus Industries operation shall be placed in privileged
foreign status (19 CFR 146.41).

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 5th day of May 1995.

Susan G. Esserman,

Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate
