Advance notice of upcoming Federal Register publications regarding Buy America requirements for Manufactured Products

FHWA has posted the text of two upcoming Federal Register Notices regarding Buy America requirements on our website.

  • First, is a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on Buy America Requirements for Manufactured Products. FHWA is proposing to discontinue its general waiver of Buy America requirements for manufactured products and, in doing so, require FHWA recipients to start applying Buy America requirements to manufactured products.  FHWA is also proposing standards for applying Buy America to manufactured products should the waiver be discontinued. The proposed standards for applying Buy America to manufactured products are consistent with the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) guidance implementing the Build America, Buy America Act (BABA) provisions of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Ac (IIJA).


  • Second, FHWA will also publish a Request for Information (RFI) on the Use of Manufactured Products in highway projects. FHWA is seeking additional information on the domestic availability of specific manufactured products commonly used in FHWA-funded projects to ensure the continued effective implementation of FHWA programs that would be subject to new requirements for manufactured products. FHWA is especially interested in comments detailing domestic materials sourcing, market readiness, timeliness of product supply, and other considerations to ensure FHWA has the most comprehensive and current information available on the domestic market for manufactured products used in FHWA infrastructure projects.

For more information, please visit the links below.


We will follow up once the Notices are published in the Federal Register, and with any information regarding webinars or other outreach that is scheduled.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
