As the above class exemption ends, small businesses are no longer eligible to supply a manufacturer`s product, regardless of size, on identified items, unless a federal contractor obtains an individual exemption for NMR. Other thresholds may also apply. See, for example, FAR 19,502 for rules for acquisitions under $3,500 that do not need to be reserved for small businesses, and for acquisitions from required sources of supply, such as scrap metal for the purchase of blind or severely disabled persons. Special rules also apply to GSA Federal Supply Schedule contracts, see FAR 8.405-5.

Therefore, it is important to remain clear about the products covered by these class derogations. In the interest of efficiency and transparency, the U.S.

Small Business Administration intends to eliminate the use of Product Service Codes (PSCs) to determine whether an item is covered by a class exemption.
