SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 8(a)(17) of the Small Business Act 
(Act), 15 U.S.C. 637(a)(17), requires that recipients of Federal 
contracts set aside for small businesses, service-disabled veteran-
owned small businesses, or SBA's 8(a) Business Development Program 
provide the product of a small business manufacturer or processor, if 
the recipient is other than the actual manufacturer or processor of the 
product. This requirement is commonly referred to as the 
Nonmanufacturer Rule. The SBA regulations imposing this requirement are 
found at 13 CFR 121.406(b). Section 8(a)(17)(b)(iv) of the Act 
authorizes SBA to waive the Nonmanufacturer Rule for any ``class of 
products'' for which there are no small business manufacturers or 
processors available to participate in the Federal market.
    As implemented in SBA's regulations at 13 CFR 121.1202(c), in order 
to be considered available to participate in the Federal market for a 
class of products, a small business manufacturer must have submitted a 
proposal for a contract solicitation or received a contract from the 
Federal government within the last 24 months.
    The SBA defines ``class of products'' based on six digit coding 
system. The coding system is the Office of Management and Budget North 
American Industry Classification System (NAICS).
