U.S. Small Business Administration.
Notice of denial to waive the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Water Treatment Chemicals.
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is denying a request for a waiver of the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Water Treatment Chemicals based on our recent discovery of small business manufacturers for these classes of products. Denying this waiver will require recipients of contracts set aside for small businesses, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, or SBA's 8(a) Business Development Program to provide the products of small business manufacturers or processors on such contracts.
This notice of denial is effective April 10, 2006.Start Further Info

Section 8(a)(17) of the Small Business Act (Act), 15 U.S.C. 637(a)(17), requires that recipients of Federal contracts set aside for small businesses, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, or SBA's 8(a) Business Development Program provide the product of a small business manufacturer or processor, if the recipient is other than the actual manufacturer or processor of the product. This requirement is commonly referred to as the Nonmanufacturer Rule.
The SBA regulations imposing this requirement are found at 13 CFR 121.406(b). Section 8(a)(17)(b)(iv) of the Act authorizes SBA to waive the Nonmanufacturer Rule for any “class of products” for which there are no small business manufacturers or processors available to participate in the Federal market.
As implemented in SBA's regulations at 13 CFR 121.1202(c), in order to be considered available to participate in the Federal market for a class of products, a small business manufacturer must have submitted a proposal for a contract solicitation or received a contract from the Federal government within the last 24 months. The SBA defines “class of products” based on a six digit coding system. The coding system is the Office of Management and Budget North American Industry Classification System (NAICS).
The SBA received a request on December 12, 2005 to waive the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Water Treatment Chemicals. In response, on January 18, 2006, SBA published in the Federal Register a notice of intent to waive the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Water Treatment Chemicals. SBA explained in the notice that it was soliciting comments and sources of small business manufacturers of these classes of products. In response to that January 18, 2006 notice, SBA received comments from small business manufacturers indicating that they have furnished these products to the Federal government. Accordingly, based on the available information, SBA has determined that there are small business manufacturers of these classes of products, and, is therefore denying the class waiver of the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Water Treatment Chemicals, NAICS codes 325188 and 325199.Start Signature
