Global Advanced Metals ensures uninterrupted tantalum supply to US

Global Advanced Metals USA, Inc. said Jan. 6 that it is ensuring a stable, uninterrupted supply of tantalum to the U.S. market, in advance compliance with the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal 2020 that prohibits the U.S. Department of Defense from acquiring tantalum from non-allied foreign nations, specifically Russia, China, Iran and North Korea.

The law signed on Dec. 20, 2019, specifically included tantalum to a list of critical metals under an existing statute, which is aimed at reducing dependence on sources that could subject the country to supply chain disruptions in the future.

The Department of Defense is expected to soon update its current restrictions on sourcing certain materials from non-allied countries.
