Foreign--Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 812]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status, Thomson Consumer
Electronics, Inc. (Consumer Electronic Products), Indianapolis, Indiana

    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 Indianapolis Airport Authority,
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 72, for authority to establish special-
purpose subzone status at the consumer electronics products warehouse/
distribution facilities of Thomson Consumer Electronics, Inc., located
at sites in Indianapolis, Bloomington and Marion, Indiana, was filed by
the Board on October 31, 1995, and notice inviting public comment was
given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 67-95, 60 FR 56567, 11/9/95);
    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the
examiner's report, and finds 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 72L) at the Thomson Consumer Electronics, Inc.,
facilities in Indianapolis, Bloomington and Marion, Indiana, 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 27th day of March 1996.
Susan G. Esserman,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
