Buy American Act
The revised Buy American Act under the Biden Administration takes some working knowledge. Let PDI’s experienced consultants help you understand how your product relates to “Made in America”, “Manufactured in America,” “with parts from & Assembled in America,” compared to items that do not qualify under any category. To give an example, here is an excerpt from the Buy American Act:
A product that includes foreign components may be called “Assembled in the USA” without qualification when its principal assembly occurs in the U.S., and the assembly is substantial. For the “assembly” claim to be valid, the product’s last “substantial transformation” also should have occurred in the U.S. That’s why a “screwdriver” assembly in the U.S. of foreign components into a final product at the end of the manufacturing process doesn’t usually qualify for the “Assembled in USA” claim.
