[Order No. 786]

Hoffmann-La Roche Inc., (Pharmaceutical Products), Freeport, TX;
Grant of Authority for Subzone Status

    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 Port of Freeport, Texas, grantee
of Foreign-Trade Zone 149, for authority to establish special-purpose
subzone status at the pharmaceutical manufacturing facility (vitamins
and fine chemicals) of Hoffmann-La Roche Inc., in Freeport, Texas, was
filed by the Board on November 29, 1994, and notice inviting public
comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 39-94, 59 FR
65752, 12-21-94); 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 149B) at the plant of Hoffmann-La Roche Inc., in
Freeport, Texas, 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 November 1995.
Susan G. Esserman,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
John J. Da Ponte, Jr.,
