Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 845]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status United Technologies
Corporation, Pratt & Whitney Group Precision Components International,
Inc. (Aircraft Turbine Engine Components) Columbus, GA

    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 Georgia Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc.,
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 26, for authority to establish special-
purpose subzone status at the aircraft turbine engine component
manufacturing facilities of United Technologies Corporation, Pratt &
Whitney Group and Precision Components International, Inc. (an
affiliate of Pratt & Whitney), located within a manufacturing complex
in Columbus, Georgia, was filed by the Board on November 1, 1995, and
notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ
Docket 68-95, 60 FR 56566, 11-9-95); 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
subzones at the United Technologies Corporation, Pratt & Whitney Group
plant (Subzone 26E) and at the adjacent Precision Components
International, Inc., plant (Subzone 26F) in Columbus, Georgia, 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 7th day of October 1996.
Robert S. LaRussa,
Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration,
Alternate Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.

John J. Da Ponte, Jr.,
