Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 931]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status, Nissan Industrial Engine 
Manufacturing USA, Inc.; (Spark Ignition Industrial Engines), Marengo, 

    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 Greater Rockford Airport 
Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 176, for authority to 
establish special-purpose subzone status at the spark ignition 
industrial engine manufacturing plant of Nissan Industrial Engine 
Manufacturing USA, Inc., in Marengo, Illinois, was filed by the Board 
on October 16, 1996, and notice inviting public comment was given in 
the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 76-96, 61 FR 55268, 10-25-96); 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 176D) at the Nissan Industrial Engine Manufacturing 
USA, Inc., plant in Marengo, Illinois, 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 12th day of November 1997.
Robert S. LaRussa,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate 
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
John J. Da Ponte, Jr.,
