[Order No. 750]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status, Merck & Co., Inc.,
(Pharmaceuticals), Rahway, New Jersey

    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; [[Page 30268]]
    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 Port Authority of New York and New
Jersey, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 49, for authority to establish
special-purpose subzone status at the pharmaceutical manufacturing
facility of Merck & Co., Inc., in Rahway, New Jersey, was filed by the
Board on May 20, 1994, and notice inviting public comment was given in
the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 21-94, 59 FR 28052, 5-31-94); 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 49D) at the plant site of Merck & Co., Inc., in
Rahway, New Jersey, 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 1st day of June 1995.
Susan G. Esserman,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
