The law covers the manufacture, sales, and distribution of defense and space-related articles and services on the US Munitions List (USML). Administered by the U.S. State Department Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, the legislation is designed to control access to specific types of technology and associated data. ITAR Compliance is a collection of critical compliance requirements that help to ensure defense technology and related technical information does not fall into the hands of anyone who is not expressly intended to have it.
The law primarily applies to defense contractors that manufacture and/or export products on the USML, but all companies in the supply chain for such products must register to obtain the appropriate import or export license and meet the ITAR compliance. To meet these compliance requirements, any organization that falls under the jurisdiction of ITAR should design and implement a dedicated security policy. This policy should include provisions for both physical and network security, addressing how your data is stored and accessed.
There is no room for noncompliance when it comes to meeting ITAR requirements, as the penalties are something most organizations cannot bounce back from. It is difficult for many businesses to even understand what their role in the supply chain process is and whether that means they are responsible for abiding by ITAR Compliance regulations.
