SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

DFARS 225.7103 and the corresponding contract clause at 252.225-7022 restricted the acquisition of PAN carbon fiber from foreign sources. As specified in DFARS 225.7103-1 and 225.7103-3, the period for applicability of the restriction ended on May 31, 2006. Therefore, this final rule removes the DFARS text that has become obsolete.

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 rule will not have a significant cost or administrative impact on contractors or offerors, or a significant effect beyond the internal operating procedures of DoD. Therefore, 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 2006-D033.

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.
