ITAR

ITAR

The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) is a set of regulations that govern the export and re-export of certain controlled services, technologies and commodities. A given component, subcomponent, part, assembly, subassembly, or integrated system, in order to be controlled under ITAR as a defense article, must have been specifically designed, developed, configured, adapted, or modified for a military application controlled under the United States Munitions List.

The regulations in ITAR also restrict technologies and sensitive information and is to only to be shared with US Citizens unless special approval is granted. These set of regulations makes sure that anything to do with US proprietary defense secrets are not shared with anyone that our government has deemed not authorized to see or be in possession of.

In order to be ITAR registered, a company must go through a registration process and is acknowledged via receipt of a registration number.

BEST’s ITAR Commitment

ITAR compliance requires a significant commitment from a company’s management and a substantial investment in systems. BEST is committed by investing in separate and secure IT resources that ensure that all of our ITAR data is stored in a manner that meets ITAR requirements.

What happens if you are not in compliance with ITAR?

The Arms Export Control Act (AECA) provides for criminal penalties of up to 10 years in prison and $1 million in fines for each violation. In addition, the AECA provides for civil penalties of up to $500,000 per violation and debarment from future exports. A copy of BEST’s ITAR registration document can be found here.
