What is ITAR?
The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) is a set of United States government regulations that control the export, import, and transfer of defense-related articles, services, and data. Managed by the U.S. Department of State, ITAR is designed to safeguard U.S. national security and further its foreign policy objectives.
Under ITAR, companies and individuals are restricted from exporting or sharing sensitive military or defense-related technologies with foreign nationals or foreign entities without first obtaining proper government authorization. Violations of ITAR can result in severe civil and criminal penalties, including fines and imprisonment.
ITAR applies not just to physical products but also to software and technical data, and it can impact industries ranging from aerospace and defense to cybersecurity and telecommunications. It's crucial for organizations and individuals operating in these sectors to fully understand ITAR compliance requirements to avoid potential legal issues.
