Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 926]

Grant of Authority For Subzone Status Pepsico of Puerto Rico, 
Inc. (Soft Drink Flavoring Concentrates) Cidra, 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 FTZ 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 and 
Farm Credit and Development Corporation for Puerto Rico, grantee of 
Foreign-Trade Zone 61, for authority to establish special-purpose 
subzone status for the soft drink flavoring concentrate manufacturing 
plant of PepsiCo of Puerto Rico, Inc., in Cidra, Puerto Rico, was filed 
by the Board on August 22, 1996, and notice inviting public comment was 
given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 66-96, 61 FR 47870, 9-11-96); 
    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 grants authority for subzone 
status at the PepsiCo of Puerto Rico, Inc., plant in Cidra, Puerto Rico 
(Subzone 61J), 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 14th day of October 1997.
Robert S. LaRussa,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate 
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.

John J. Da Ponte, Jr.,
