But not all countries have a free trade agreement with the United States, including, most importantly, countries like China and India. Therefore, if a business supplier offers the U.S. government a commodity manufactured in India, for example, that property would not be in compliance with the TAA and the contractor would not be able to supply it to public procurement. The Court also found that the FAR did not block Acretis entecavir tablets. Under the FAR TAA clause 52.225-5, a contractor must supply « only finished domestically manufactured or designated products in the United States. » And the « final product of the United States » is defined as « an item that is extracted, produced or produced in the United States, or that is deeply processed in the United States. » The Court stated that the origin of the components was not relevant to determining where a product is manufactured. Because Acretis manufactured the tablets in New Jersey, the product was a TAA-compliant « American final product. » According to the Court, « it is not necessary for a product in the United States to be manufactured or substantially redeveloped to be a finished product manufactured in the United States. » Instead, « such products can be . . . made in the United States from components made from abroad.

Under this contract, the supplier only supplies finished products manufactured or designated in the United States, unless its offer indicates the delivery of other finished products in the « commercial contract certificate » provision. As prescribed in 25.1101 (c) (1), insert the following clause: What is the key to take away? If the TAA applies to your contract, you can deliver a finished product manufactured in the United States, if it is manufactured only in the United States, even if the components are manufactured abroad.
