If I have a single unassembled commodity that includes certain inserts that can be removed (such as a helix coil that could be pulled out) does that commodity fall under the definition of a “part”?

< Back

Any commodity that includes more than one element where one of the elements is intended to be able to be removed, or is capable of being removed, without the destruction or the impairment of the commodity’s design use would take that commodity outside the scope of the “parts” definition. Such a commodity is most likely a “component.”

Previous If I have a past commodity jurisdiction determination (CJ) from the Department of State that indicated my item is not subject to the ITAR, and at that time, it was classified on the CCL in a paragraph that does not use “specially designed” or was EAR99, will that past CJ be preserved?
Next If I have a “part” or “component” that I believe is not significant, but it is not specified in paragraph (b)(2), can I rely on paragraph (b)(2) to ‘release’ the “part” or “component?”
