DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE

Foreign-Trade Zones Board

[Order No. 1705]

 
Grant of Authority for Subzone Status Michelin North America, 
Inc. (Tire Distribution and Wheel Assembly) Baltimore, MD

    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, the Foreign-Trade Zones Act provides for ``* * * the 
establishment* * * of foreign-trade zones in ports of entry of the

other purposes,'' and authorizes the Foreign-Trade Zones Board to grant 
to qualified corporations the privilege of establishing foreign-trade

adjacent to U.S. Customs and Border Protection 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, and when the activity results 
in a significant public benefit and is in the public interest;
    Whereas, the City of Baltimore, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 74, 
has made application to the Board for authority to establish a special-
purpose subzone at the warehouse/distribution and wheel assembly 
facility of Michelin North America, Inc., located in Elkton, MD, (FTZ 
Docket 55-2009, filed 12/03/2009);
    Whereas, notice inviting public comment has been given in the 
Federal Register (74 FR 65515, 12/10/2009) and the application has been 
processed pursuant to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations; 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 would be satisfied, and that the proposal would be 
in the public interest if subject to the restriction listed below;
    Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants authority for subzone 
status for activity related to tire and tire accessories warehousing 
and distribution and wheel assembly at the facility of Michelin North 
America, Inc., located in Elkton, Maryland (Subzone 74B), as described 
in the application and Federal Register notice, subject to the FTZ Act 
and the Board's regulations, including Section 400.28, and further 
subject to the following condition:

    Tires subject to temporary Section 421 duties shall be admitted 
in privileged foreign status (19 CFR Sec. 146.41) or domestic (duty 
paid) status (19 CFR Sec. 146.43).

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 3rd day of September 2010.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, Alternate 
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
