US Buy American Requirements
US AIP Buy American Preference Requirements
The Buy American Preferences under 49 U.S.C. § 50101 require that all steel and manufactured goods used in Airport Improvement Program (AIP) funded projects be produced in the United States. In accepting AIP funding, grant recipients must certify that all steel or manufactured products used on any portion of the AIP-funded project are produced in the United States and are of 100 percent U.S. materials.
All Amerace airfield lighting products are manufactured at our Thomas & Betts facility in Ormond Beach, Florida.
All Amerace products conform to the Buy American requirements.
FAA Headquarters (APP-500) maintains a list of equipment that is frequently used on AIP-funded projects that has been issued a Nationwide Waiver. Sponsors do not need to request waivers for equipment on this Buy American Conformance List.
