SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    DFARS 225.7103 and the corresponding contract clause at 252.225-
7022 restricted the acquisition of PAN carbon fiber from foreign 
sources. As specified in DFARS 225.7103-1 and 225.7103-3, the period 
for applicability of the restriction ended on May 31, 2006. Therefore, 
this final rule removes the DFARS text that has become obsolete.
    This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review 
under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This rule will not have a significant cost or administrative impact 
on contractors or offerors, or a significant effect beyond the internal 
operating procedures of DoD. Therefore, publication for public comment 
is not required. However, DoD will consider comments from small 
entities concerning the affected DFARS subparts in accordance with 5 
U.S.C. 610. Such comments should cite DFARS Case 2006-D033.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply, because the rule does 
not impose any information collection requirements that require the 
approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, 
et seq.
