Berry Compliance and How it Affects You
At MMI, we’re proud to be an American business, providing high-quality products for our customers. In fact, we carry many options that are compliant with the Berry Amendment, allowing you premier American-made fabrics.
Not sure whether the Berry Amendment applies to you when it comes to purchasing? Here’s a quick take on how Berry compliance works.
What is Berry Compliance?
Essentially, it’s a way to make sure that you buy products made in the U.S. The Berry Amendment was originally passed by Congress in 1941 to promote U.S. goods.
That means that certain organizations are required to purchase American-made products. There are a few exceptions, but that would end up being a rather lengthy discussion, you can refer to the Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy website.
How Does it Affect Me?
That depends on whether your project is affiliated with the Department of Defense (DoD). If you’re using funds that are connected to the DoD, then you need to be Berry compliant.
If you’re not working on a project tied in with DoD funds, then you don’t have to worry about being Berry compliant, although it’s always good to support American businesses and products.
