Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 787]

IPR Pharmaceuticals, Inc., (Pharmaceutical Products), Guayama and 
Carolina, Puerto Rico; Grant of Authority for Subzone Status

    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 Commercial and Farm Credit and 
Development Corporation of Puerto Rico, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 
61, for authority to establish special-purpose subzone status at the 
pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities of IPR Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 
in Guayama and Carolina, Puerto Rico, was filed by the Board on 
December 16, 1994, and notice inviting public comment was given in the 
Federal Register (FTZ Docket 42-94, 59 FR 66892, 12-28-94); and,
    Whereas, the Board has found 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 
subzones (Subzones 61F and 61G) at the plant sites of IPR 
Pharmaceuticals, Inc., in Guayama and Carolina, 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 28th day of November 1995.
Susan G. Esserman,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate 
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
John J. Da Ponte, Jr.,
