What is the Trade Agreements Act (TAA)?
The Trade Agreements Act (TAA), enacted in July of 1979, is an Act of Congress that governs trade agreements negotiated between the United States and other countries under the Trade Act of 1974. The TAA was designed to maintain robust international trading systems while creating new trade opportunities for the United States of America. A product is generally TAA compliant if it is made in the United States of America or one of the following “Designated Countries”.
- Nations in a free trade agreement with the United States of America, including Canada, Mexico, Singapore, and Australia.
- Nations participating in the World Trade Organization Government Procurement Agreement (WTO GPA), such as Japan and several European countries.
- Other developing and Caribbean Basin nations, such as Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Costa Rica, Haiti, and others.
All NVT Phybridge IP products are made in Canada and are TAA compliant. Our products have been used by Federal, State, and Local U.S. government agencies to enable IP and IoT devices.
What is the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)?
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is a series of United States federal laws specifying the annual budget and expenditures of the U.S. Department of Defense. Within the National Defense Authorization Act, S889 (a)(1)(A) and (B) states that the United States Government shall not use technology – in the entire supply chain – from a banned technology or surveillance company.
NVT Phybridge products, manufacturers, and suppliers do not use banned technology and do not source from/are not a banned company. Therefore, all NVT Phybridge IP products are eligible for use under the U.S. National Defense Authorization Act.
