ITAR Compliance

ITAR Compliance Services

The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) is a set of U.S. government rules that control the import and export of various technologies, services, and articles on the U.S. Munitions List (USML).

Compliance with this strict set of regulations is vital because it helps to ensure defense technology and related technical data does not fall into the hands of those who want to harm the greater good of the United States.

Many companies assume that ITAR compliance requirements only relate to tanks, missiles, and weaponry, but these regulations apply to much more than this.

While ITAR applies to military applications, non-compliance can be used to many other applications.

Who Needs To Be ITAR Compliant?

Any company that works with the U.S. military or defense-related products, along with sensitive data that could be applied to related items on the USML, must be aware of and fully compliant with ITAR.

While the main focus of ITAR governance applies to defense-related articles, this strict set of rules also apply to all companies with a wide range of products and services that are covered on the USML.

ITAR Compliance F.A.Q.s

Who needs ITAR Registration?
Any company that manufactures defense articles or is involved in the export of these items (exporters, brokers, and freight forwarders) must ensure that they are registered with the DDTC and meet any other applicable requirements specified in the ITAR. A defense article is any item or technical data listed on the United States Munitions List (USML).

What is a Deemed Export?
Deemed exports involve the transfer of controlled items or information from one person to another. (Compared to the transfer of controlled items from one country to another.) As an example, if a U.S. citizen emails an ITAR-controlled blueprint to a French citizen, then export is “deemed” to have occurred from the United States to France. The U.S. controls deemed exports in similar ways to actual (physical) movement of items overseas.

What are ITAR controlled goods?
ITAR controlled goods, referred to as defense articles, are those items that are specifically identified in the United States Munitions List, or USML, which is a section within the ITAR.

This list includes descriptions of the items that are controlled. A defense article is any item or technical data listed on the United States Munitions List (USML).
