New Brother TAA-Compliant Printers for U.S. Government

On December 4th, Brother International new document-imaging devices designed to meet security requirements in the public sector. Brother says that TAA compliance was a driving factor for these new business-class products.

TAA refers to the Trade Agreements Act (19 U.S.C. & 2501-2581), which is intended to foster fair and open international trade. TAA requires that the U.S. government may acquire only “U.S. – made or designated country end products. This act requires that contractors must certify that each end product meets the applicable requirements. End products are ‘those articles, materials and supplies to be acquired for public use’.” This includes items which have been “substantially transformed” in the United States.

The new Brother Workhorse TAA compliant devices include the HL-L6400DWG monochrome laser printer and the MFC-L6900DWG monochrome MFP/All-in-One.
