(‘‘P&S’’), pursuant to subpart B of Part 177, Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) Regulations (19 CFR 177.21 et seq.). Your letter was forwarded to CBP’s National Commodity Specialist Division in New York and was returned to this office by memorandum of June 3, 2008. Under the pertinent regulations, which implement Title III of the Trade Agreements Act of 1979, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2511 et seq.), CBP issues country of origin advisory rulings and final determinations as to whether an article is or would be a product of a designated country or instrumentality for the purpose of granting waivers of PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 certain ‘‘Buy American’’ restrictions in U.S. law or practice for products offered for sale to the U.S. Government. This final determination concerns the country of origin of a ground fault circuit interrupter (‘‘GFCI’’). We note that P&S is a party-at-interest within the meaning of 19 CFR 177.22(d)(1) and is entitled to request this final determination. You also request a country of origin marking determination. Facts You describe the pertinent facts as follows. The business of P&S includes the design, manufacture, and distribution of GFCI’s in the U.S. for residential and commercial use in electrical circuits of less than 1,000 volts. The GFCI’s are electrical components, designed for installation in electrical circuits, which are able to detect small imbalances in the circuit’s current caused by leakages of current to ground. When leakage is detected, the GFCI opens the electrical circuit, stopping the flow of current. Legrand, the parent company of P&S, produces the subcomponents of the GFCI in China through another subsidiary, Rocom Electric Co. Ltd. (‘‘Rocom’’). The subcomponents include the following: cover, reset button, test button, spring, light pipe, strap assembly, assembly terminals, contact, separator, springs, latch block top, spark gap blades, assembly screw terminals, armature, spring assembly, term assemblies, PCB subassembly, assembly screw terminals, back body, screws and labels. Rocom plans to ship the subcomponents to a facility in Mexico where they will be assembled into the GFCI’s. The GFCI’s will be tested and packaged at the same facility. Upon completion of assembly, testing, and packaging, the GFCI’s will be imported into the U.S. by P&S for sale and distribution. You state that the process in Mexico to assemble the GFCI is comprised of forty-three discrete steps and takes approximately ten minutes. You state that each GFCI is comprised of thirty component parts which, until inclusion in the final GFCI, have little or no functionality. An exhibit to your correspondence, which includes photographs, describes the assembly process as follows: 1. Place back body into date code fixture/stamping press and press button to apply date code on side of back body. 2. Remove back body from date code fixture. Place hot terminal screw pressure plate assembly into back body cradle on line end. E:\FR\FM\19SEN1.SGM 19SEN1
