All such clauses provide the same definition of specialty metals and prohibit Clear Align and all of its suppliers at every tier from incorporating specialty metals into military parts, components and/or end item deliverables unless the specialty metals have been smelted (the Deviation clauses add “or produced”) in the United States, its outlying areas, or a qualifying country listed in DFARS 225.872-1.
Exemptions to requirements of the above clauses may exist, as outlined in the clauses themselves or by operation of applicable Department of Defense Domestic Non-Availability Determinations (DNADs) posted on its public web site for that purpose. If you believe an exemption(s) apply, please specify the specifics and provide Clear Align with documents and information sufficient to demonstrate your entitlement thereto.
