Please note: Due to worldwide-located manufacturing facilities, it is not uncommon for a given device to be produced in several countries (US, Asia, Europe) with components of varying origins. The supplied parts do not come up with the Implementation Act of the Union Customs Code / Annex 22-16 - IA / (EU) 2015/2447. Therefore, it is not possible to issue any preferential document. Customs code and ECCN are mentioned on the order confirmation and on the invoice. These classifications only represent the opinion of the AVNET Group and are not to be seen as legal position.
