Title: ●Applicability of Hexavalent Chromium Policy to Commercial Items (DFARS Case 2011-D047) 
Abstract: DoD proposes to amend the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to clarify the applicability to commercial items of DoD policies relating to the use of materials containing hexavalent chromium. DoD published a final rule at in the Federal Register at 76 FR 25569 on May 5, 2011, to implement the DoD policy addressing the serious human health and environmental risks related to the use of hexavalent chromium. The final rule overlooked the need to separately prescribe the clause in part 212 in order to require use of the clause in acquisitions conducted under part 212. This rule proposes to correct that oversight.
