Foreign-Trade Zones Board

[Order No. 1859]


Grant of Authority for Subzone Status; Tesla Motors, Inc., 
(Electric Passenger Vehicles), Palo Alto and Fremont, CA

    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 and Border Protection 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, and when the activity results 
in a significant public benefit and is in the public interest;
    Whereas, the City of San Jose, California, grantee of Foreign-Trade 
Zone 18, has made application to the Board for authority to establish a 
special-purpose subzone at the electric passenger vehicle manufacturing 
facilities of Tesla Motors, Inc., located in Palo Alto and Fremont, 
California (FTZ Docket 3-2012, filed 1-10-2012);
    Whereas, notice inviting public comment has been given in the 
Federal Register (77 FR 2269, 1-17-2012) and the application has been 
processed pursuant to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations; and,
    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations 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 grants authority for subzone 
status for activity related to the manufacturing of electric passenger 
vehicles and related powertrain components at the Tesla Motors, Inc., 
facilities located in Palo Alto and Fremont, California (Subzone 18G), 
as described in the application and Federal Register notice, subject to 
the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Section 400.13.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 20th day of September 2012.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, Alternate Chairman, 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
