[Order No. 828]

Approval of Manufacturing Activity Within Foreign-Trade Zone 21,
Charleston, South Carolina; Hubner Manufacturing Corporation
(Industrial Bellows/Molded Parts)

    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, Sec. 400.28(a)(2) of the Board's regulations, requires
approval of the Board prior to commencement of new manufacturing/
processing activity within existing zone facilities;
    Whereas, the South Carolina State Ports Authority, grantee of FTZ
21, has requested authority under Sec. 400.32(b)(1) of the Board's
regulations on behalf of the Hubner Manufacturing Corporation, to
manufacture industrial bellows and plastic/rubber molded parts under
zone procedures within FTZ 21, Charleston, South Carolina (filed 11-30-
95, FTZ Docket A(32b1)-20-95; Doc. 43-96, assigned 5-23-96);
    Whereas, pursuant to Sec. 400.32(b)(1), the Commerce Department's
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration has the authority to act
for the Board in making such decisions on new manufacturing/processing
activity under certain circumstances, including situations where the
proposed zone benefits do not involve the election of nonprivileged
foreign status on items involving inverted tariff benefits
(Sec. 400.32(b)(1)(iii)); and,
    Whereas, the request, as amended, states that Hubner Manufacturing
Corporation will destroy all foreign status scrap merchandise within
FTZ 21;
    Whereas, the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, acting
for the Board, pursuant to Sec. 400.32(b)(1), concurring in the
findings and recommendations of the FTZ Staff and Executive Secretary,
approves the request;
    Now, therefore, the application for manufacturing authority is
approved, subject to the Act and the Board's regulations, including
Sec. 400.28, and subject to the following restrictions:
    1. Privileged foreign status (19 CFR Sec. 146.41) shall be elected
on all foreign-origin merchandise admitted to the zone for the Hubner
Manufacturing Corporation operation; and,
    2. Initial approval is for a period of three (3) years from the
date of activation of zone procedures at the plant, subject to
extension upon review.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 17th day of June 1996.
