DFAR 252.225-7008 Restriction on Acquisition of Specialty Metals

In the (a) definitions, is says that specialty metal means "(i) Steel - (B) Containing more than 0.25 percent of any of the following elements: aluminum, ..."

Is aluminum, say T6061, considered specialty metal (i) steel, or is there type of steel that contains that much aluminum?

In "(b) Any specialty metal delivered under this contract shall be melted or produced in the United States or its outlying areas". What does "outlying areas" mean exactly?

Thanks!!

When I review the DFARS requirements I use the following web page:

http://www.acq.osd.mil/dpap/dars/dfars/html/current/225_8.htm

If you scroll down about 2/3 down, there is a list of countries that are DFARS compliant. Note, keep an eye on this, it changes about 1 to 2 times a year and looking at it now, the list of countries 'seems' longer than normal (when I look at it, I just do a quick "is the country on the list" look).

Sorry, mis-read your post. I have always assumed that means the 'official' territories of the United States. Of coarse this is 'my assumption'.
