Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 1005]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status Lucent Technologies Inc. 
(Telecommunications Equipment), Columbus, Ohio

    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 
United States, to expedite and encourage foreign commerce, and for 
other purposes,'' and authorizes the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 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, the Rickenbacker Port Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade 
Zone 138, has made application to the Board for authority to establish 
special-purpose subzone status at the telecommunications equipment 
manufacturing facility of Lucent Technologies Inc., located in 
Columbus, Ohio, (FTZ Docket 73-97, filed 9/29/97);
    Whereas, notice inviting public comment has been given in the 
Federal Register (62 FR 52683, 10/9/97); and,
    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the 
examiner's report, and finds that the requirements of the FTZ Act and 
the 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 telecommunications equipment manufacturing facility of 
the Lucent Technologies Inc., located in Columbus, Ohio, (Subzone 
138E), at the location described in the application, and subject to the 
FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Sec. 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 19th day of October 1998.
Robert S. LaRussa,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate 
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.

Dennis Puccinelli,
Acting Executive Secretary.
