|Applies To||RSA Product Set: SecurID|
RSA Product/Service Type: Hardware Tokens
|Resolution||The RSA SecurID token is manufactured in China on RSA’s behalf by an American multinational contract manufacturer. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has ruled that substantial transformation happens at the time of programming, so origin is considered to be based on where the token is programmed.|
In the case of a United States customer, the country of origin would be the United States as the programming for tokens in the Americas occurs at the RSA headquarters located in Bedford, Massachusetts.
In the case of an EMEA or APJ customer, the country of origin would be Ireland, as the programming for tokens in EMEA and APJ occurs at the RSA location in Shannon, Ireland.
