DOD/DARC RIN: 0750-AL17 Publication ID: Fall 2020 
Title: ●Authorities for Minimizing the Use of Materials Containing Hexavalent Chromium (DFARS Case 2020-D031) 

DoD is proposing to amend the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to remove references to Executive Order 13423, Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management, and Executive Order 13514, Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance, as the authorities for the policy at DFARS subpart 223.73, Minimizing the Use of Materials Containing Hexavalent Chromium.  Both Executive Order 13423 and Executive Order  13514 were revoked by Executive Order 13693, Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade, which was later revoked by Executive Order 13834, Efficient Federal Operations (83 FR 23771, May 22, 2018).  However, the removal of these references will not impact DoD’s policies and procedures for minimizing the use of hexavalent chromium, a known carcinogen, still used in some DoD weapons systems and platforms due to its corrosion protection properties.
