Understanding ITAR for electronics manufacturers
The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) is a set of US government regulations that control the export and import of defense-related articles and services. ITAR compliance is crucial for electronics manufacturers, as many products containing certain technical data or components can be considered defense articles under these regulations.
ITAR requirements for electronics manufacturers
  • Registration: If your company manufactures, exports, or temporarily imports defense articles or furnishes defense services, you must register with the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC). Registration is an annual requirement and must be renewed every year.
  • Export Licensing: ITAR requires manufacturers to obtain an export license before exporting any item or service listed on the United States Munitions List (USML). This includes technical data, software, hardware, and defense services related to ITAR-controlled items.
  • Compliance Program: Manufacturers dealing with ITAR-controlled items must implement a robust compliance program. This includes procedures for handling technical data, record-keeping, employee training, and audits to ensure adherence to ITAR regulations.
  • Classification: Manufacturers must determine if their products, components, or technical data are subject to ITAR controls. This process, known as commodity jurisdiction, involves submitting a request to DDTC for classification.
Even if a product is intended for commercial use, if it incorporates ITAR-controlled technical data or components, it may be subject to ITAR regulations. Failure to comply with ITAR can result in severe civil and criminal penalties, including fines, denial of export privileges, and even imprisonment. Therefore, it is crucial for electronics manufacturers to understand and adhere to ITAR requirements to ensure regulatory compliance and avoid potential legal consequences.
Enterprise access
Secure file transfers
Our file share server is authorized for transferring any non-classified files, including ITAR and CUI data. No third-party servers are used, so there is no account setup needed to send or receive files with our team.

Files can be sent both to and from our ITAR team, allowing us to efficiently communicate with all partners in the supply chain.
