ITAR is Not Just For Things That Go ‘Boom’ – Learn What You Need to Know

ITAR stands for International Traffic in Arms Regulations; they are administered by the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) within the State Department. The ITAR were established under the Arms Export Control Act of 1976; it authorizes the president to control import, export and brokering of defense articles and defense services.

All manufacturers, exporters and distributors of defense articles, related technical data, and defense services as defined by ITAR are required to register with the DDTC. By registering with the DDTC you are confirming that you and your firm understands it’s requirements to comply with the ITAR.  

Note, manufacturers are required to register even though they don’t export anything subject to the ITAR controls. ITAR controls apply to physical products on the U.S. Munitions List (USML), and to services, software, and technical data.
