Build My Firearm Export Compliance Program

Navigate Global ITAR / Export Regulations

Build My Firearm Export Compliance Program

ITAR compliance can be tricky. Training is important but not enough to prevent inadvertent ITAR violations. The U.S. State Department encourages all DDTC registrants to have a written export compliance program.

Orchid Advisors uses propriety standard operating procedures (SOPs) designed for the firearms and ammunition industry to create great export compliance programs for its clients. Key features include:

  • We provide customized SOPs based on Orchid templates that impose controls on the leading areas for ITAR violations – licensing, technology control and international sales methodology.
  • We show our clients how to implement export compliance procedures so Orchid SOPs become part of the fabric of your company’s daily life.
  • Turnkey solutions available – we can build your export compliance program from scratch or help improve your existing program.
