Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 774]

Grant of Authority For Subzone Status, Brother Industries
(U.S.A.) Inc. (Typewriters and Word Processors) Bartlett, Tennessee

    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

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 City of Memphis, Tennessee,
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 77, for authority to establish special-
purpose subzone status for the typewriter and word processor
manufacturing facilities of Brother Industries (U.S.A.) Inc., located
in Bartlett, Tennessee, was filed by the Board on November 22, 1994,
and notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register
(FTZ Docket 38-94, 59 FR 62709, 12/6/94); 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 77B) at the Brother Industries (U.S.A.) Inc.
facilities in Bartlett, Tennessee, 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 11th day of September 1995.
