What is ITAR?
The International Traffic Arms Regulations (ITAR) describe the laws governing the export of defense-related materials and technologies, including hardware, software, and services.
Administered by the (DDTC) Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, (Department of State) the goal of ITAR is to safeguard U.S. national security and further U.S. foreign policy objectives and policies. It provides descriptions of important terms, with information and procedures for registration, licenses, agreements, general policies, violations, penalties, and administrative procedures.
Who should comply?
Under the ITAR law, a company that manufactures defense articles, supplies, technology or provides defense services domestic and abroad is required to comply.
If your company offers dual-use or specially classified items under the control of the Commerce Control List (CCL) and the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), similar restrictions on access are applicable.
