Notice of Issuance of Final Determination Concerning Pocket Projectors
Document Number: 2011-12713
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-05-24
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
This document provides notice that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') has issued a final determination concerning the country of origin of pocket projectors. CBP was asked to consider two manufacturing scenarios, under which certain operations would be performed in Taiwan or in China. Based upon the facts presented, CBP has concluded that the manufacturing and testing operations performed in Taiwan do not substantially transform the non-TAA country components. The light engine module and the PCBA main board are the essence of the projectors and it is at their production where the last substantial transformation occurs. Therefore, when the light engine module and PCBA main board module are assembled and programmed in China, the country of origin of the projectors is China for purposes of U.S. government procurement. However, if the light engine module and PCBA main board module are assembled and programmed in Taiwan, then the country of origin of the projectors is Taiwan for purposes of U.S. government procurement.
