The Buy American Act and Trade Agreements Act: Understanding Federal Domestic Preference Requirements

PilieroMazza has posted an on-demand webinar discussing compliance with new laws requiring or providing a preference for the purchase of goods, products, or materials produced in the United States.

President Trump signed Executive Order 13788 on April 18, 2017, aimed at tougher enforcement of the “Buy American Laws” which are those laws requiring or providing a preference for the purchase of goods, products, or materials produced in the United States. Given the Trump administration’s intent for stricter enforcement of domestic preference requirements, government contractors need to stay abreast of the relevant laws and regulations, such as the Buy American Act  and the Trade Agreement Act, the firm says on its website.

Webinar topics include:

  • The general requirements of the BAA and TAA
  • The applicability of the requirements and exceptions to their applicability
  • Tests for determining a product’s country of origin
  • Relevant FAR clauses and certifications
  • The potential penalties for non-compliance
  • Practical tips and strategies for compliance

Watch the on-demand webinar.
