International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) controls the export of US defense-related articles. Its regulations state that no non-US person can have physical or logical access to the articles stored in the ITAR environment.
Administered by the Department of State’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), the goal of ITAR is to safeguard U.S. national security and further U.S. foreign policy objectives and policies.
The legislation seeks to control access to specific types of technology and the associated data, so as to prevent the disclosure or transfer of sensitive information to a foreign national.
If your company deals with defense equipment, supplies, services or technologies, the ITAR and Export Compliance regulations specify that you share these items only with U.S. persons and organizations unless you receive authorization from the Department of State or qualify for a special exemption.
Legal compliance with ITAR requires that your Minnesota business follows all regulations, and remains compliant with updated amendments and regulations to avoid violations.
When it comes to violations, ignorance is no excuse and neither is good intentions. Failure to comply with ITAR can result in civil fines as high as $500,000 per violation.
