SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A summary for the FAR rule follows. For the actual revisions and/or amendments made by this FAR case, refer to the specific subject set forth in the document following this item summary. FAC 2020-01 amends the FAR as follows:

Definition of “Commercial Item” (FAR Case 2018-008)

This final rule amends the definition of “commercial item” in FAR part 2 to reflect the statutory change made by section 847 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018. Section 847 expands the universe of nondevelopmental items that qualify as commercial items to include items sold, in substantial quantities on a competitive basis, to multiple foreign governments.

This final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.
