It was held that these parts were substantially transformed as a result of the operations performed in the United States, leading to the production of an aircraft engine. In HRL H022169, dated May 2, 2008, a glider (consisting of a frame, finished cab, axels, and wheels) was imported into the United States and assembled with approximately 87 different component parts (including the essential parts: A motor, controller, and charger of Canadian origin; a gear box and axel of U.S. origin; and brakes of Indian origin) into an electric minitruck. The process consisted of eight assembly work stations involving attachment and installation operations, as well as quality control and testing of the product. It was held that the imported glider and other foreign components were substantially transformed into an electric mini-truck by the assembly operations that took place in the United States. See also HRL 558919, dated March 20, 1995 (holding that an extruder subassembly manufactured in England was substantially transformed in the United States when it was wired and combined with U.S. components (motor, electrical controls and extruder screw) to create a vertical extruder, particularly noting that the imported extruder and U.S. components were functionally necessary to the operation of the vertical extruder); HRL H075667, dated January 21, 2010 (holding that 53 components were substantially transformed into an alternator by the assembly operations in the United States, noting the 169 minute, 31 step process involving skilled workers and the U.S.-origin of the regulator component); and, HRL 734292, dated May 26, 1992 (holding that imported components and subassemblies were substantially transformed into electronic motors in the United States, noting the U.S. origin of the stator component because of the extensive experience required for production of the stator). In this case, we find that the imported parts are substantially transformed as a result of the assembly operations in the United States. We note that building the R47DRE90M4 in the United States consists of assembling together 131 unique parts, and at least a total of 200 parts. Similarly to HRL 559703 and HRL H022169, production of the R47DRE90M4 requires importing numerous parts of various origins, which are used to first assemble the gear VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:14 Mar 21, 2017 Jkt 241001 box and motor subassemblies, and then to assemble the complete gearmotor, through a complex operation with specialized skill and expertise. As noted in HRL H075667 and HRL 734292, the complex operation in this case involves at least 27 steps that take approximately two hours. We note that SEW USA’s workers are hired with previous experience in mechanical fields, and undergo additional training by SEW USA, which may endure several weeks to a few months, in order to reach the proficiency in the assembly operations that is required by the company. Under the described assembly process, the foreign components lose their individual identities and become an integral part of a new article, the R47DRE90M4, possessing a new name, character and use. Based upon the information before us, we find that the components that are used to manufacture the R47DRE90M4 are substantially transformed as a result of the assembly operations performed in the United States, and that the country of origin of the R47DRE90M4 for government procurement purposes is the United States. HOLDING: The components that are used to manufacture the R47DRE90M4 are substantially transformed as a result of the assembly operations performed in the United States. Therefore, the country of origin of the R47DRE90M4 for government procurement purposes is the United States. Notice of this final determination will be given in the Federal Register, as required by 19 CFR 177.29. Any partyat-interest other than the party which requested this final determination may request, pursuant to 19 CFR 177.31, that CBP reexamine the matter anew and issue a new final determination. Pursuant to 19 CFR 177.30, any partyat-interest may, within 30 days of publication of the Federal Register Notice referenced above, seek judicial review of this final determination before the Court of International Trade. Sincerely, Alice A. Kipel, Executive Director, Regulations and Rulings, Office of Trade.
