     Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of

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

    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 Triangle J Council of Governments,
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 93, for authority to establish special-
purpose subzone status at the telecommunications and computer equipment
manufacturing facility of the Custom Manufacturing Services unit of
Lucent Technologies Inc., in Whitsett, North Carolina, was filed by the
Board on March 27, 1995, and notice inviting public comment was given
in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 9-95, 60 FR 17052, 4-4-95); and,
    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the
examiner's reports, 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 93E) at the plant of Custom Manufacturing Services,
Lucent Technologies Inc., in Whitsett, North Carolina, 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 29th day of April 1996.

Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
