(Revised May 10, 2016)
“Component,” as used in this subpart, means any item supplied to the Government as part of an end product or of another component.
Unless the supplies are entitled to duty-free treatment under a special category in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (e.g., the Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act or a Free Trade Agreement), or unless the supplies already have entered into the customs territory of the United States and the contractor already has paid the duty, DoD will issue duty-free entry certificates for—
(1) Qualifying country supplies (end products and components);
(2) Eligible products (end products but not components) under contracts covered by the World Trade Organization Government Procurement Agreement or a Free Trade Agreement; and
(3) Other foreign supplies for which the contractor estimates that duty will exceed $300 per shipment into the customs territory of the
225.903 Exempted supplies.
(ii) The duty-free certificate shall be printed, stamped, or typed on the face of, or attached to, Customs Form 7501. A duly designated officer or civilian official of the appropriate department or agency shall execute the certificate in the format provided at PGI 225.903(b)(ii) (DFARS/PGI view).
