South Bay Circuits: ITAR Registered


The US Government expects all producers, exporters, and dealers of defense articles, defense services, or similar technical information to be ITAR registered. To satisfy this OEM’s are requiring their supply chain members be ITAR REGISTERED. You will typically find language contained in contracts, on purchase orders, and request for proposals stating this requirement to meet: The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). Communicating with staff members of the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) may get slightly different answers, but the generally accepted definition is:

For a company involved in the manufacture, sale or distribution of goods or services covered under the United States Munitions List (USML), or a component supplier to goods covered under the USML, the stipulation or requirement of being “ITAR certified (compliant)” means that the company must be registered with the State Department’s DDTC, if required as spelled out on DDTC’s web site and the company must understand and abide by the ITAR as it applies to their USML linked goods or services. The company themselves is certifying that they operate in accordance with the ITAR when they accept being a supplier for the USML prime exporter. 

Simply stated, to be ITAR COMPLIANT, you need to be registered with DDTC and understand the requirements to be in compliance with ITAR, and self-certify that you meet the standard.

ITAR can be found at: ITAR Regulations
