Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 939]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status: The B&F System, Inc. 
(Consumer Products/Knife Assembly), Dallas, Texas

    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 Dallas/Fort Worth Maquila Trade 
Development Corporation, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 168, for 
authority to establish special-purpose subzone status at the 
warehousing/distribution and processing facility of The B&F System, 
Inc., in Dallas, Texas, was filed by the Board on November 6, 1996, and 
notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ 
Docket 81-96, 61 FR 58860, 11-19-96); 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 168A) at the The B&F System, Inc., facility in Dallas, 
Texas, at the location described in the application, subject to the FTZ 
Act and the Board's regulations, including Sec. 400.28, and subject to 
the condition that foreign origin merchandise related to the assembly 
activity shall be admitted to the subzone in privileged foreign status.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 8th day of December 1997.
Richard W. Moreland,
Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, 
Alternate Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
John J. Da Ponte, Jr.,
Executive Secretary.
