Airport Act Determinations

The U.S. Trade Representative is required by the Airport and Airway Improvement Act of 1982, as amended, to decide annually whether any foreign countries have denied fair market opportunities to U.S. products, suppliers, or bidders in connection with airport construction projects of $500,000 or more that are funded in whole or in part by the governments of such countries.

This decision must be published in the Federal Register by April 30.

Under the Act, products and suppliers from countries designated by USTR are automatically barred from most airport procurements underwritten by federal funds unless the Secretary of Transportation finds that debarment would not be in the public interest or makes other specified findings.
