    Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of

general-purpose zones;
    Whereas, the Indianapolis Airport Authority, grantee of Foreign-
Trade Zone 72, submitted an application to the Board (FTZ Docket 50-

proposes three additional magnet sites (Sites 6-8);
    Whereas, notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal 
Register (75 FR 51752-51753, 8/23/2010) and the application has been 
processed pursuant to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations; and,
    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendation of the 
examiner's report, and finds that the requirements of the FTZ Act and 
Board's regulations are satisfied, and that the proposal is in the 
public interest;
    Now, therefore, the Board hereby orders:
    The application to reorganize FTZ 72 under the alternative site 
framework is approved, subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's 
regulations, including Section 400.28, to the Board's standard 2,000-
acre activation limit for the overall general-purpose zone project, to 
a five-year ASF sunset provision for magnet sites that would terminate 
authority for Sites 2-3, 6-8 and 12-13 if not activated by March 31, 
2016, and to a three-year ASF sunset provision for usage-driven sites 
that would terminate authority for Sites 9-11 if no foreign-status 
merchandise is admitted for a bona fide customs purpose by March 31, 

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 3rd day of March, 2011.
