Buy American Compliance

Understanding What “Buy America Compliant” Really Means

As an American company, Evenlite is directly affected by ARRA, (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009). We are routinely asked to provide ARRA compliant products that are “Made In America.” Naturally we are proud to tell prospects and customers precisely which of our products fall into this category.

However, prospects and customers alike should know that “Made In America” is not a technical term recognized by any governmental authority, including administrators of ARRA. Consequently, we caution you to look on companies using this term with skepticism, since it means many different things to different people.

The significant term for your consideration is “Buy America Compliant” which does have a very specific, important meaning. “Buy America Compliant” describes products that satisfy an assortment of ARRA- sanctioned Buy America criteria including various free trade agreements, allowances for substantial transformation, and labor content.
