What Does It Mean for a Manufacturer to Be ITAR Compliant?
ITAR registration is intended for companies who manufacture products that are covered under the United States Munitions List (USML). This primarily comprises military and defense contract manufacturers, as well as specialized aerospace machining applications. The regulations were originally created by the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) organization in 1976.
To be ITAR compliant, the manufacturer is required to register with the State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) and abide by all stipulations regarding the manufacturing of defense products and the protection of all related intellectual property.
The Purpose of ITAR Registered Manufacturing
ITAR registration and compliance is intended to protect military and defense products – along with all related engineering information – from being copied by foreign manufacturers or falling into the wrong hands. After all, these products will potentially be utilized in combat situations and other extreme military environments. ITAR compliance therefore helps ensure the health and safety of our nation’s troops by ensuring that they have the highest quality, most uncompromised tools for the job.
