Metric Bolt is a DFAR compliant material supplier of fasteners, bolts, and hardware.

DFARS fasteners from Metric Bolt are compliant to all Federal Government standards, making us the perfect supplier for your aerospace and military fasteners. For many of our customers it is imperative that we provide DFARS compliant parts and material traceability.

What does DFARs compliance mean though?

Simply put, the acquisition of a part manufactured from what the Department of Defense (D.O.D) deems to be a specialty material must be obtained and manufactured domestically or from a qualified DFARs country.

Military fasteners are critical components in a wide variety of applications, from aerospace and defense to commercial transportation. That’s why it’s important to partner with trusted military fastener suppliers like Metric Bolt that can meet all of your DFARS materials compliance requirements.

What Does DFARS Mean?

DFARS (acronym) for Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement, we heavily emphasize the meaning of defense in this. DFARS compliance has a wide impact on nearly everything that a company is trying to secure.  

Even if you have a strong understanding of DFARS compliance requirements, you might not know why it is so important for our country. The most direct explanation is that our government enacted this requirement to protect the United States domestic industrial base.

DFARS compliance is made to protect us from sensitive data being compromised by foreign entities. It is essential that you understand for the safety of our country you must be compliant. If you aren’t obtaining DFARS compliant parts from a reliable fastener supplier, you jeopardize our national security and the functionality of the parts themselves.

On a high level, it is enough to say companies that provide transparent military supply chain management are better geared up for strict demands than those who have difficulty in identifying parts, products, or fasteners.
