[Order No. 755]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status, BASF Corporation,
(Vitamins/Industrial Plastics/Plastic Auto Parts) Wyandotte, MI

    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

[[Page 40820]]
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 Greater Detroit Foreign Trade
Zone, Inc., grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 70, for authority to
establish special-purpose subzone status at the chemical products
(vitamins, industrial plastics, and plastic auto parts) manufacturing
facilities of BASF Corporation in the Wyandotte, Michigan, area, was
filed by the Board on October 12, 1993, and notice inviting public
comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 52-93, 58 FR
55040, 10-25-93); 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 70S) at the plant sites of BASF Corporation in the
Wyandotte, Michigan, 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 2nd day of August 1995.
Susan G. Esserman,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
