Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 816]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status Sony Magnetic Products Inc.
of America; (Magnetic Media and Battery Systems), Dothan, AL

    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 City of Mobile, Alabama, grantee
of Foreign-Trade Zone 82, for authority to establish special-purpose
subzone status at the manufacturing plant (unrecorded magnetic media
and battery systems) of Sony Magnetic Products Inc. of America, located
in Dothan, Alabama, was filed by the Board on November 21, 1995, and
notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ
Docket 78-95, 60 FR 61527, 11/30/95); and,
    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 82D) at the Sony Magnetic Products Inc. of America
plant in Dothan, Alabama, 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 19th day of April 1996.
Susan G. Esserman,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
