What is TAA?
TAA is an acronym for the United States Trade Agreements Act (TAA) of 1979. Passed by the 96th U.S. Congress in 1979, the TAA is a piece of legislation approving and implementing multiple trade agreements previously enacted and negotiated between the U.S. and other countries under the Trade Act of 1974.
A good or service is TAA-compliant if manufactured or substantially transformed in the United States or manufactured in a TAA-designated country. A TAA-designated country is a nation with which the U.S. maintains a trade agreement and regards as a reliable or acceptable procurement source.
Now, what does "substantially transformed" mean? It means that the product has become a new and different commerce article in terms of name, character, or use.
