In a Federal Register notice (Vol. 75, No. 248) published on December 28, 2010 the Federal Aviation Administration announced its decision to issue Buy American waivers for foreign object debris (FOD) detection equipment. The FAA determined that two manufacturers with products containing 60% or more U.S. content and U.S. final assembly are able to produce sufficient and reasonable amounts of FOD detection equipment meeting the agency's requirements. The FAA therefore issued Buy American waivers based on the 60% U.S. content and U.S. final assembly, but did not issue any Buy American waivers based on insufficient quantity to foreign manufacturers. The notice became effective on the date of publication. The potential beneficiaries of this waiver are located in Singapore (Stratech Systems Limited), Israel (Magna BSP Ltd. and X-Sight Systems Inc.), and Italy (Rheinmetall Italia S.P.A.).
