SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

This final rule amends the clauses at DFARS 252.227-7007, Buy American Act—Trade Agreements—Balance of Payments Program, and 252.225-7021, Trade Agreements. The rule adds Iceland to the list of designated countries under the Trade Agreements Act, as directed by the United States Trade Representative. Iceland joined the World Trade Organization Government Procurement Agreement in April 2001.

This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

This final rule does not constitute a significant revision within the meaning of FAR 1.501 and Public Law 98-577 and publication for public comment is not required. However, DoD will consider comments from small entities concerning the affected DFARS subparts in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should cite DFARS Case 2001-D008.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the rule does not impose any information collection requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.
