SonicWall & TAA Compliance
The U.S. Trade Agreements Act (TAA) was created, in part, to foster fair international trade with certain designated countries. The U.S. Government is required to obtain products and services that are subject to the Buy American Act and numerous international trade agreements. TAA offers an exception to the Buy American Act by allowing the Government to purchase “foreign end products” only if those products are from designated countries with which the Government has the appropriate trade agreement.
