Q: What are the exceptions to the Buy American restrictions?

A: In certain circumstances a project will qualify for an exception to the Buy American provisions. There are only three exceptions as shown”

  1. Nonavailability: Iron, steel, or manufactured goods are NOT produced in the United States in sufficient and reasonably available (commercial?) quantities and of satisfactory quality;
  2. Unreasonable Cost*: Inclusion of iron, steel, or manufactured goods produced in the United States will increase the cost of the overall project by more than 25%*NOTE: This cost waiver is for the ENTIRE PROJECT, NOT THE CURRENT BILL OF MATERIALS! 
  3. Public Interest: Applying the Buy American provision is inconsistent with the public interest.

TIP ! Know Before You Buy, ” Ask Are These Products MANUFACTURED in The USA. ”  and ALWAYS  ask for THEIR Certificate of Compliance.
