DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE
[Order No. 875]

 
Grant of Authority for Subzone Status; Ohmeda Caribe Inc./Ohmeda 
Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Inc. (Pharmaceutical Products) Guayama, 
Puerto Rico

    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 Commercial Farm Credit and 
Development Corporation of Puerto Rico, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 
61, for authority to establish special-purpose subzone status at the 
pharmaceutical manufacturing plant of Ohmeda Caribe Inc./Ohmeda 
Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Inc., in Guayama, Puerto Rico, was filed 
by the Board on June 22, 1995, and notice inviting public comment was 
given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 33-95, 60 FR 34510, 7-3-95); 
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 
for a five-year period, subject to extension, is in the public 
interest;
    Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants authority for subzone 
status at the pharmaceutical manufacturing plant of Ohmeda Caribe Inc./
Ohmeda Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Inc., located in Guayama, Puerto 
Rico (Subzone 61H), at the location described in the application, for a 
period of 5 years from the date of this Board Order, subject to 
extension upon application, and subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's 
regulations, including Sec. 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 25th day of February 1997.

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