Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 823]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status, MagneTek, Inc. (Electronic
Fluorescent Lighting Ballasts), Madison, 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 Huntsville-Madison County Airport
Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 83, for authority to establish
special-purpose subzone status at the manufacturing facility
(electronic fluorescent lighting ballasts and components) of MagneTek,
Inc., in Madison, Alabama, was filed by the Board on November 3, 1995,
and notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register
(FTZ Docket 70-95, 60 FR 57216, 11-14-95); 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 83B) at the MagneTek, Inc., plant, in Madison,
Alabama, at the location described in the application, subject to the
FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Section 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 9th day of May 1996.
Paul L. Joffe,
Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration,
Alternate Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
John J. Da Ponte, Jr.,
