 ITAR Consulting (International Traffic in Arms Regulations)

ITAR Overview:  

International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) control the export and import of defense related articles and services on the United States Munitions List (USML).These regulations implement the provisions of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA), and are described in Title 22 (Foreign Relations), Chapter I (Department of State), Subchapter M of the Code of Federal Regulations. The Department of State Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) interprets and enforces ITAR. Its goal is to safeguard U.S. national security and further U.S. foreign policy objectives.

The related Export Administration Regulations (Code of Federal Regulations Physical enforcement of the ITAR; and all import and export laws of the United States is performed by Homeland Security Investigations Special Agents (formerly U.S. Customs) under Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an agency of the Department of Homeland Security. Additionally, Customs and Border Protection Officers, also under the Department of Homeland Security, inspect imports and exports at U.S. Border Crossings and International Airports and enforce import and export regulations.For practical purposes, ITAR regulations dictate that information and material pertaining to defense and military related technologies (items listed on the U.S. Munitions List) may only be shared with U.S. Persons unless authorization from the Department of State is received or a special exemption is used. U.S. Persons (including organizations) can face heavy fines if they have, without authorization or the use of an exemption, provided foreign persons with access to ITAR-protected defense articles, services or technical data.

FAQs

I already have an TAA Filed with the State Department, why would I need GK?
To monitor and stay current.  If changes occur, you will need to re-file to stay current.  If you do not have an European HR expert on staff, you will unnecessarily burden your staff with complex and very different processes and tracking.  HR departments in the states will not be available during the work hours half way across the globe.
