TAA / Not Made In PRC China Compliance Guide

By Conor Healy, Published Jun 27, 2022, 09:47am EDT (Info+)

Increasingly, sellers are marketing products as "TAA Compliant". While this term may not widely be known, in practice, it indicates that the product is not made in the People's Republic of China (PRC) and typically implies it is made in South Korea, or Taiwan.

TAA compliance differs from NDAA compliance, as some products made in PRC China may be NDAA compliant, while some products made in TAA compliant countries may contain NDAA-banned components.

Inside this note, we explain how TAA compliance works, and provide examples of various companies offering TAA compliant products.
