Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 935]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status: Abbott Manufacturing, Inc.
(Infant Formula, Adult Nutritional Products), Columbus, Ohio

    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 Rickenbacker Port Authority,
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 138, for authority to establish special-
purpose subzone status for export activity at the infant formula and
adult nutritional products manufacturing plant of Abbott Manufacturing,
Inc., in Columbus, Ohio, was filed by the Board on April 9, 1996, and
notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ
Docket 28-96, 61 FR 17875, 4-23-96); 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
for export manufacturing is in the public interest;
    Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants authority for subzone
status at the Abbott Manufacturing, Inc., plant in Columbus, Ohio
(Subzone 138C), 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 further requirement that all foreign origin, tariff rate
