Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 937]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status Fossil Partners, L.P.;
(Watches, Sunglasses, Accessories) Richardson, 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 International
Airport Board, grantee of FTZ 39, for authority to establish special-
purpose subzone status at the warehousing/distribution facility
(watches, sunglasses and accessories) of Fossil Partners, L.P., in
Richardson, Texas, was filed by the Board on March 12, 1997, and notice
inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket
15-97, 62 FR 13595, 3-2-97); 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 39E) at the Fossil Partners, L.P. facility in
Richardson, Texas, 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 3rd day of December 1997.
Robert S. LaRussa,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
