1.3.2 Commerce Material Approval Program
Visit the Department of Commerce website’s Material Approval (MA) Program page and check if any of the components you are reviewing already have a Material Approval.
If there is no Material Approval this does not necessarily mean that a component is not approved for use. It may mean that a Material Approval is not required. However, it is best to check with the appropriate personnel in the Department to verify if a Material Approval is required for the component you are reviewing.
