Static Control talks TAA compliance

December 9, 2019

In its latest blog, Static Control discusses what TAA-compliant cartridges stand for and why customers can benefit from available solutions.

The Trade Agreement Act (TAA) (19 U.S.C. & 2501-2581) was created in 1979 and is intended to foster the growth and maintenance of a fair and open trading system, amtgov.com explains. TAA compliance requires that the US Government (including GSA) acquires only US-made or certain “designated country” end products. This means that all products must be either manufactured or “substantially transformed” in the United States or a TAA compliant country.

In the situation where a product is assembled or comprised of components from several different countries, the guideline applies to the last country that the product is in before imported to the United States. At least 50% of the production must be completed by a TAA compliant country.

Although the full list of TAA compliant countries can change, at the moment non-TAA countries include China, India, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Pakistan, Russia, and Sri Lanka.

Static Control writes: “Three countries notably missing from TAA compliance are China, Russia and India – making some electrical equipment contracts difficult to win. Lying to the government about TAA compliance can result in a False Claim Act suit from the government which can impose major damages for defrauding government agencies.”
