Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 936]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status, Diesel Technology Company
(Inc.) (Diesel Engine Fuel Injection Components), Kentwood, Michigan

    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 Kent Ottawa Muskegon Foreign Trade
Zone Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 189, for authority to
establish special-purpose subzone status for the diesel engine fuel
injection components manufacturing facilities of the Diesel Technology
Company (Inc.), in Kentwood, Michigan, was filed by the Board on
October 31, 1996, and notice inviting public comment was given in the
Federal Register (FTZ Docket 80-96, 61 FR 58036, 11-12-96); 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 grants authority for subzone
status at the Diesel Technology Company (Inc.), facilities in Kentwood,
Michigan (Subzone 189A), at the locations described in the application,
subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including
Sec. 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 11th day of December 1997.
Robert S. LaRussa,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
