Notice of Made in America Law Waiver Requests

The purpose of this web page is to provide the public with an informal notice and comment opportunity regarding “Made in America Law” waiver requests under MARAD’s various Federal financial assistance programs. “Made in America Laws” means all statutes, regulations, rules, and Executive Orders relating to MARAD’s Federal financial assistance awards, including those that refer to “Buy America” or “Buy American,” that require, or provide a preference for, the purchase or acquisition of goods, products, or materials produced in the United States.

MARAD Notice, Comment, and Review Process

For all waiver requests, we will post a notice of the waiver request on this web site and solicit public comments on MARAD’s intent to issue a waiver. We will consider all comments received in the comment period during our evaluation of the waiver request. Comments received after this period, but before notice of our finding is published, will be considered to the extent practicable.

Each “Made in America Law” waiver request that is currently open for public comment is identified below under the section "waiver requests for comment."
