What You Need to Know About ITAR

Frequently Asked Questions

Commercial ITAR refers to the export and re-export of commercial items and technology that are subject to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). The term “commercial” is used very broadly and includes all items, except those classified as EAR99, for which a license or other approval from the U.S. Department of State is required for export. The defense trade controls and regulations are designed to control the export of items that have potential military applications and prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

In order to be considered a commercial item, the technology or product must be:

  • Customarily available in the marketplace;
  • Generally suitable for sale to anyone without restriction; and
  • Not subject to the ITAR.

If a product or technology meets all three of these criteria, then it is considered commercial and can be exported without a license from the Department of State. However, if the product or technology does not meet one or more of these criteria, then it is subject to the ITAR and a license may be required.

Related technical data and defense services may also be subject to the ITAR, even if the product itself is not. For example, technical data relating to the design of a commercial item may be subject to the ITAR if it is required for the development, production, or use of a defense article.

ITAR compliance refers to the compliance of a company or individual with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations. These regulations control the export of defense-related products and technologies and are designed to prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. To be ITAR compliant, a company or individual must adhere to all applicable regulations.

There are a number of requirements that must be met in order to be ITAR compliant. These requirements include registering with the Department of State, maintaining records of all exports and re-exports, and obtaining the necessary licenses or other approvals prior to exporting any defense articles or technologies.

There is much more to commercial ITAR compliance than just these requirements, however. A company or individual must also have a thorough understanding of the regulations and be able to comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

If you are unsure of whether or not you are ITAR compliant, you should consult with experienced professionals like TLR.

TLR has a team of compliance experts who can help you ensure that you are in compliance with all applicable regulations. We can also help you develop processes and procedures to ensure that you remain in compliance in the future.
