International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)
ITAR Compliance with Confidence as a Service™
What is ITAR?
The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) is a set of United States government regulations that control the export and import of defense-related articles and services on the United States Munitions List (USML). ITAR is designed to prevent the unauthorized transfer of military and defense-related technologies to foreign nations and entities deemed a threat to U.S. national security.
ITAR applies to all companies and individuals involved in the manufacturing, sale, or distribution of defense and space-related articles and services as defined in the USML. This includes a broad range of businesses, from large defense contractors to small suppliers in the defense supply chain, and even academic institutions involved in research and development of defense-related technology. Companies dealing with items such as military vehicles, defense electronics, naval equipment, aerospace technology, and even technical data related to these items fall under ITAR regulations.
Compliance Requirements: Key Aspects of ITAR Compliance
Registration: Companies must register with the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC). Registration is a prerequisite to applying for export licenses and is a declaration of intent to comply with ITAR.
Export Licensing: Obtain specific licenses for exporting defense articles or services on the USML. Each transaction requires a license, unless exempt.
Technical Data Control: Control access to technical data related to USML items. This includes ensuring that non-U.S. persons (both employees and third parties) do not access controlled technical data without authorization.
Record Keeping: Maintain accurate records of ITAR-related activities, including export licenses and agreements, for a minimum of five years.
Training and Awareness: Implement a robust training program to ensure that employees understand ITAR requirements and the importance of compliance.
Compliance Program: Develop and maintain an ITAR compliance program that includes policies, procedures, and internal controls to ensure adherence to regulations.
