Massachusetts Export Center to Host Jeff Grody on Export / ITAR

International Traffic in Arms Regulations

Fundamentals of International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)

Have your customers recently notified you that you need to be compliant with ITAR, whether you export or not? Is your company involved in any Department of Defense contracts that cover military technology or services? Are you exporting or currently planning to export defense products and technical data to foreign prime contractors?
Many exporters and even manufacturers who don’t export are subject to International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), which govern manufacturing and exports of defense articles, technical data and services. However, they are often unclear on their obligations under regulations, and the ongoing Export Control Reform is only adding to the confusion. If your company is just beginning to venture into ITAR, or needs a refresher course, this program is for you!
This seminar will cover the nuts and bolts of the ITAR, including a regulatory overview, commodity jurisdiction, registration requirements, data and physical security requirements, handling of foreign employees and visitors, licenses and agreements. The program will also specify compliance areas of concern and obligations for non-exporters, and will also provide compliance tips and best practices for managing compliance with ITAR.
