What is ITAR Compliance?

ITAR Compliance Definition

ITAR compliance means that organizations (wholesalers, contractors, software/hardware/technology vendors, third-party suppliers) which sell, manufacture, and distribute services or products must abide by the rules and specifications set forth by the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).

To become ITAR compliant, organizations can register with the State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC). Once registered and accepted, companies and vendors will understand what is required of their organization to be ITAR compliant. It is the company’s responsibility to make sure the ITAR specifications are followed–making sure their service or product falls within ITAR compliance rules and regulations.
