Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; PAN Carbon Fiber

14 June 2001

The Director of Defense Procurement is proposing to amend 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 five-year period to minimize short-term risks to DoD and current domestic suppliers.
