Ya, when I did MP3  we just took out the built in FM receiver for the EU

All that said, I'm interested in notions of final assembly "in region" for a
varity of reasons.

AFAIK 14 % import duties for "broadcast receivers". Therefore some companies
split production between basic device + receiver module
(china) and final assembly in europe. Then, the 14% are charged on import of
the receiver modules only and not for the complete device.
