No, a “part” cannot have any moving elements. In order to have moving elements the commodity would need to consist of more than one single unassembled element, which would take the commodity outside the scope of the “parts” definition.

Note: Flexing and bending are not considered moving elements. Certain “parts” may be capable of flexing and bending or may have been designed to flex and bend.

Previous Are there paragraph (b) ‘releases’ that address scenarios where the “part,” “component,” “accessory,” “attachment,” or “software” was or is being “developed” for use in or with commodities or software described in ECCNs and also for use in or with EAR99 items or items described in AT-only ECCNs?
