Regional Planning Commission for a Foreign-Trade Zone in the Albany, New 
York Area  
 
TEXT: Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, D.C.  
 
 
Resolution and Order 
 
   Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 USC 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
has adopted the following Resolution and Order: 
 
   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:  
 
   After consideration of the application of the Captial District Regional 
Planning Commission, a New York public corporation, filed with the Foreign-
Trade Zones Board (the Board) on December 6, 1984, and amended on January 
23, 1985, requesting a grant of authority for establishing, operating, and 
maintaining a general-purpose foreign-trade zone at sites in the Albany, 
New York, Customs port of entry area, including the manufacture of 
specialty trucks and dermatological soaps, the Board, finding that the 
requirments of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended, and the Board's 
regulations are satisfied, and that the proposal is in the public interest,
approves the application.   

   As the proposal involves open space on which buildings may be constructed
by parties other than the grantee, this approval includes authority to the 
grantee to permit the erection of such buildings, pursuant to Section 
400.815 of the Board's regulations, as are necessary to carry out the zone 
proposal, providing that prior to its granting such permission it shall 
have the concurrences of the local District Director of Customs, the U.S. 
Army District Engineer, when appropriate, and the Board's Executive 
Secretary. Further, the grantee shall notify the Board's Executive 
Secretary for approval prior to the commencement of any manufacturing 
operation within the zone other than those mentioned above. The Secretary 
of Commerce, as Chairman and Executive Officer of the Board, is hereby 
authorized to issue a grant of authority and appropriate Board Order.  
 
 
Grant To Establish, Operate, and Maintain a Foreign-Trade Zone in the 
Albany, New York Area 
 
   Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To 
provide for the establishment, operation, and maintenance 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 USC 81a-81u) 
(the Act), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) is authorized and 
empowered to grant to corporations the privilege of establishing, operating,
and maintaining foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to ports of entry under 
the jurisdiction of the United States;   

   Whereas, the Capital District Regional Planning Commission (the 
Grantee), a New York public corporation, has made application (filed 
December 6, 1984, Docket No. 53-84, 49 FR 48584, amended 1/23/85, 50 FR 
3946) in due and proper form to the Board, requesting the establishment, 
operation, and maintenance of a foreign-trade zone at sites in Albany, 
Schenectady and Rensselaer Counties, New York, adjacent to the Albany 
Customs port of entry;  

   Whereas, notice of said application has been given and published, and 
full opportunity has been afforded all interested parties to be heard; and,
 
   Whereas, the Board has found that the rquirements of the Act and the 
Board's regulations (15 CFR Part 400) are satisfied; 
 
   Now therefore, the Board hereby grants to the Grantee the privilege of 
establishing, operating, and maintaining a foreign-trade zone, designated 
on the records of the Board as Zone No. 121 at the locations mentioned 
above and more particularly described on the maps and drawings accompanying
the application in Exhibits IX and X, subject to the provisions, 
conditions, and restrictions of the Act and the regulations issue 
thereunder, to the same extent as though the same were fully set forth 
herein, and also to the following express conditions and limitations: 
 
   Activation of the foreign-trade zone shall be commenced by the Grantee 
within a reasonable time from the date of issuance of the grant, and prior
thereto the Grantee shall obtain all necessary permits from Federal, State,
and municipal authorities. 
 
   The Grantee shall allow officers and employees of the United States free
and unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade zone sites in 
the performance of their official duties. 
 
   The Grantee shall notify the Executive Secretary of the Board for 
approval prior to the commencement of any manufacturing operations within 
the zone other than those involving the manufacture of specialty trucks 
and dermatological soaps as described in the application record. 
 
   The grant shall not be construed to relieve the Grantee from liability 
for injury or damage to the person or property of others occasioned by the 
construction, operation, or maintenance of said zone, and in no event 
shall the United States be liable therefor. 
 
   The grant is further subject to settlement locally by the District 
Director of Customs and the Army District Engineer with the Grantee 
regarding compliance with their respective requirements for the protection
of the revenue of the United States and the installation of suitable 
facilities.   

   In witness whereof, the Foreign-Trade Zones Board has caused its name 
to be signed and its seal to be affixed hereto by its Chairman and 
Executive Officer at Washington, D.C. this 18th day of July 1985, pursuant
to Order of the Board.
