The regulator is a key component of the alternator. Should the alternator not supply enough power, the battery will get depleted and the vehicle will stop operating. The regulator will be assembled with fifty-two other components, into the alternator in a thirty-one step process which will take approximately 169 minutes. Under the described assembly process, the foreign components lose their individual identities and become an integral part of a new article, the alternator, possessing a new name, character and use. Based upon the information before us, we find that the components that are used to manufacture the alternator, including the regulator manufactured in the U.S., are substantially transformed as a result of the assembly operations performed in the U.S., and that the country of origin of the alternator for government procurement purposes is the U.S. HOLDING: The components that are used to manufacture the alternator are substantially transformed as a result of the assembly operations performed in the U.S. Therefore, the country of origin of the alternator for government procurement purposes is the U.S. Notice of this final determination will be given in the Federal Register, as required by 19 C.F.R. § 177.29. Any party-at-interest other than the party which requested this final determination may request, pursuant to 19 C.F.R. § 177.31, that CBP reexamine the matter anew and issue a new final determination. Pursuant to 19 C.F.R. § 177.30, any party-at-interest may, within 30 days after publication of the Federal Register notice referenced above, seek judicial review of this final determination before the Court of International Trade.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Russell Morris, Broker Compliance Branch, Office of International Trade, (202) 863–6543. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Section 641 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1641), provides that a person (an individual, corporation, association, or partnership) must hold a valid customs broker’s license and permit in order to transact customs business on behalf of others, sets forth standards for the issuance of broker’s licenses and permits, and provides for the taking of disciplinary action against brokers that have engaged in specified types of infractions. In the case of an applicant for an individual broker’s license, section 641 provides that an examination may be conducted to determine the applicant’s qualifications for a license. The regulations issued under the authority of section 641 are set forth in part 111 of title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR part 111). Part 111 includes detailed rules regarding the licensing of, and granting of permits to, persons desiring to transact customs business as customs brokers. These rules include the qualifications required of applicants and the procedures for applying for licenses and permits. Section 111.11 (19 CFR 111.11) sets forth the basic requirements for a broker’s license and, in paragraph (a)(4), provides that an applicant for an individual broker’s license must attain a passing grade on a written examination taken within the 3-year period before submission of the license application prescribed under § 111.12 (19 CFR 111.12). Section 111.13 (19 CFR 111.13) sets forth the requirements and procedures for the written examination for an individual broker’s license. Paragraph (b) of § 111.13 pertains to the date and place of the examination and states that written customs broker license examinations will be given on the first Monday in April and October unless the regularly scheduled examination date conflicts with a national holiday, religious observance, or other foreseeable event and U.S. PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) publishes in the Federal Register appropriate notice of a change in the examination date. CBP recognizes that the first Monday in April 2010 (April 5) coincides with the observance of Passover. In consideration of this conflict with Passover, CBP has decided to change the date of the examination pursuant to § 111.13(b). Accordingly, this document announces that CBP has scheduled the April 2010 examination for Wednesday, April 7. Dated: January 26, 2010.
