The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) is the US regulation that governs the manufacturing, sale, and distribution of defense items, services, and technologies as described in the United States Munitions List (USML).
The USML covers 21 categories of defense articles, for example:
The Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) at the State Department is responsible for enforcing ITAR.
ITAR regulations must be followed by all producers (including foreign suppliers), exporters, temporary importers, brokers, and suppliers of defense goods, services, or technical data listed on the USML. You should make sure that each organization in your supply chain has rules in place to stay ITAR compliant.
If you do not comply with the ITAR Regulations, penalties can include civil and criminal fines.
The U.S. government also has the authority to take the additional measure of banning a company from any related future exports and imports.
There is no official certification procedure to become ITAR Compliant. However, several criteria are crucial for creating an ITAR compliance plan.
