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,

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.
