ITAR Compliance Requirements
The International Traffic in Arms Regulations, or ITAR, is a set of government rules that control the export and import of defense-related articles, services and technology on the U.S. Munitions List (USML). It is a collection of critical compliance requirements that help to ensure defense technology and related technical information does not fall into the hands of anyone who is not expressly intended to have it.
As an important U.S. export control law, the ITAR affects the manufacture, sale, and distribution of technology. The goal of the legislation is to control access to specific types of technology and their associated data. Overall, the government is attempting to prevent the disclosure or transfer of sensitive information to a foreign national. As a result, ITAR can pose challenges for global corporations, since data related to specific technologies may need to be transferred over the internet or stored locally outside of the United States in order to make business processes flow smoothly. The responsibility lies with the manufacturer or exporter to take the necessary precautions and steps to certify that they are, in fact, meeting ITAR compliance requirements.
