NOVEMBER 15, 2017 Individual agency compliance plans must be submitted to the Director of the Office and Management and Budget (OMB) and Secretary of Commerce due today for the Buy America Act.

April 18, 2017, President Trump signed the Buy American and Hire American Executive Order #13788 to reduce Federal waiver applications, support the US economy, and hold government agencies responsible for initiatives regarding procuring Made in USA goods. This executive order reinforces the 1933 Buy American Act which was enacted to protect America’s interest by requiring government agencies to prefer Made in USA goods, products, and vendors for government procurements.

Timeline- for Buy America Act

The General Services Administration (GSA), which oversees $66 billion in annual government procurement, will be accountable for securing Made in USA goods and products for their scheduled procurements. Additionally, the GSA will have to provide annual implementation reports to the Secretary of Commerce and the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regarding ‘Buy American’ initiatives starting this November of 2017. The Secretary of Commerce must submit these November reports to President Trump annually every January starting in 2019.

A Word From Our Clients

In a competitive environment, Made In USA Certified is another opportunity for differentiation, it’s also one of our most popular marketing initiatives and is one of the key reasons the EarthWise Group had sales growth of 37% over the last Two years.

Mark Davis, Executive Director, EarthWise Group

We are genuinely ‘Made in USA’. There are so many people out there that just stick a flag on their packaging and it doesn’t mean anything. Made in USA Certification sets us apart from all those other generic labels and that is why it is important to us.

Dan Nied, CFO, Jones Natural Chews

Often, if you check a label inside a t-shirt that has an American flag pictured on the front, you’ll find that the shirt was Made in China! It’s not always China—it could be Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Honduras—anywhere but the United States. This is an irony that is emblematic of the enormous shift in emphasis away from manufacture in this country over the last few decades. The apparel industry began to defect a few decades ago to save on labor costs—who could blame them, you say? In fact, there are many advantages to keeping production local, and many of those who left for foreign production have probably experienced enough problems lately to have given some thought these days to those benefits.

Lida Orzeck, CEO, Hanky Panky

Due to the Made in USA Certification we saw our SALES increase, and it opened doors with major DIY retailers such as Lower, Home Depot, and Walmart!

David Jablow, CEO, Tube Technology

To help us make an American choice, on these and other issues, a Florida company, Made in USA Certified verifies companie’s claims that the materials and manufacturing are domestic.
