Polyacrylonitrile Carbon Fiber

14 December 2000

The Director of Defense Procurement has issued a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to phase out restrictions on the acquisition of polyacrylonitrile (PAN) carbon fiber from foreign sources. The restrictions will be phased out over a 5-year period to minimize short-term risks to DoD and current domestic suppliers.
