FOREIGN-TRADE ZONES BOARD ORDER NO. 34 Any Article of Czechoslovak Origin Revoking Order Prohibiting Manipulation, Manufacture, or Any Other Process of Treatment in Foreign-Trade Zone
Pursuant to authority contained in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 18, 1934, as amended (48 Stat. 998-1003; 19 USC 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board has adopted the following order which is promulgated for the information and guidance of all concerned: Whereas, upon the recommendation of the Department of State, the Foreign-Trade Zones Board on January 9, 1953, issued its order No. 30 (18 FR 375, Jan. 16, 1953), providing that no manipulation, manufacture, or any other process of treatment of any article of Czechoslovak origin shall be allowed in a foreign-trade zone; and Whereas, the Department of State, upon reviewing the situation in light of the present circumstances, considers that it now is no longer against the public interest to permit manipulation or manufacture of goods of Czechoslovak origin in a foreign-trade zone; Now, therefore, upon the recommendation of the Department of State, the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, after full consideration and a finding that it is in the public interest, and under the authority granted to it by section 15(c) of said Foreign-Trade Zones Act, hereby revokes said Order No. 30. It is found that compliance with the notice, public rule making procedure, of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 USC 1003) is impractical, unnecessary, and contrary to the public interest in connection with the issuance of this order, because rather than adversely affecting the rights of interested persons, it restores a privilege to such persons. The effective date of this order is, therefore, the date of publication in the Federal Register. Signed at Washington, DC, this 29th day of July 1953.
