Accreditation and Approval of Saybolt LP (St. Rose, LA) as a Commercial Gauger, 19296-19297 [2018-09288]

In holding that the country of origin of the assembled printers was Japan, CBP recognized that the vast majority of the printer’s parts were of Japanese origin and that the operations performed in China were relatively simple assembly operations. Here, as in HQ 558919, the merchandise contains many U.S. materials that are important components of the final product. With the exception of the French-origin ISA, which may in some cases contain U.S. parts, and some German-origin connectors on one subassembly, all the materials used in the gyroscope are of U.S.-origin. These U.S.-origin parts are essential to the functionality of the finished gyrocompass. As noted above, the processor board serves as the ‘‘intelligence’’ of the product and contains firmware and the user interface that allows a ship’s crew to control the product. The interface board serves as the electrical link between the ship’s electrical equipment and the product, and the DSP board processes the raw data generated by the ISA into a format that is compatible with navigational equipment. Without the U.S.-origin components, the ISA’s functionality would be limited to measuring raw accelerations and rotation rates and would not be capable of producing the output expected from a navigational gyrocompass including heading, roll, pitch, and heave. In addition, the assembly processes that will occur in the United States are complex and time-consuming. Each of the electronic boards contains dozens of electrical components that must be properly mounted to the surface of the board and soldered into place. This process takes 4.2 hours, while the customized metal housing takes about ten hours to manufacture. Next, these components will be combined with the ISA in a process that includes placing a gasket, affixing a heat-sink compound, soldering connectors, attaching cables, fastening screws, and loading software. This process will take an additional seven and a half hours. Finally, significant post-assembly testing procedures, which will calibrate the merchandise and ensure smooth communication with the ship’s navigational equipment, will be carried out in the United States. [The Manufacturer] states that the calibration testing will take up to 24 hours. Consistent with previous CBP decisions, the large number of individual components, the 4.2 hours that will be spent assembling the boards, the ten hours that will be spent manufacturing VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:14 May 01, 2018 Jkt 244001 the metal housing, the seven and a half hours that will be spent on final assembly, and the time spent on final calibration testing (up to 24 hours) are evidence of complex and meaningful assembly operations in the United States. In addition, we find that the Frenchorigin ISAs will undergo a change in name, character, and use when they are assembled into finished gyrocompasses in the United States. Although a change in a product’s name is the weakest evidence of a substantial transformation, Uniroyal, Inc. v. United States, 3 CIT 220, aff’d 703 F.2d 1022 (Fed. Cir. 1983), we note that the name of the imported material will change from ISA to gyrocompass after assembly in the United States. Furthermore, the ISA’s character—or its ‘‘mark, sign [or] distinctive quality,’’ Energizer Battery Inc. v. United States, No. 16–116, slip op. at 18 (CIT 2016) (quoting Webster’s Third New Int’l Dictionary of the English Language Unabridged (2002) at 376)—will change from a component capable of taking raw measurements to a calibrated system able to record, collect, and transmit data to a ship’s navigational systems. Finally, the integration of the French-origin ISA into the finished product changes its use from a measurement component to a complete gyrocompass and ‘‘attitude reference system that is capable of delivering actionable data integrated into the ship’s navigation and control systems.’’ Because of the change in name, character, and use that occurs in the United States, and considering the totality of the U.S. assembly operations, amount and importance of U.S. materials, and testing that will occur in the United States, the country of origin of the gyrocompasses will be the United States for purposes of U.S. Government procurement. HOLDING: The country of origin of the gyrocompasses for purposes of U.S. Government procurement will be the United States. 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 of publication of the Federal Register Notice referenced above, seek judicial review of this final determination before the Court of International Trade.
