PGI 225.7018-3 Exceptions.
(c)(1) Commercially available off-the-shelf samarium-cobalt magnets are still subject to the restrictions of 10 U.S.C. 4863 unless incorporated into commercially available off-the-shelf end items or subsystems (see (b)(2)(i)(C)).
(2) A samarium-cobalt magnet that is exempt from 10 U.S.C. 4872 because it is incorporated in an electronic device is still subject to the restrictions of 10 U.S.C. 4863, because the exemption under that statute applies to “electronic component,” which excludes any high performance magnet used in the electronic component (see definition of “electronic component” at 225.7003-1).
