International Traffic In Arms Regulations (ITAR)
- ITAR applies to all defense articles or defense services, including related technical data and software. Defense articles and defense services are those articles and services specially designed, developed, configured, adapted or modified for military use that either: 1) do not have a predominant civil application and do not have a civil performance equivalent; or 2) have had significant military and intelligence capability. ITAR generally requires a license for the export of such items, subject to certain limited exceptions.
- Exports of items subject to ITAR are controlled by the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) of the Department of State. Those items designated as “defense articles” or “defense services” are set forth on the U.S. Munitions List (USML).
- All manufacturers, exporters and brokers of defense articles, defense services or related technical data, as defined on the USML, are required to register with DDTC.
- The Web site to register with the U.S. State Department http://pmddtc.state.gov/registration.htm This site contains a guide for registering and phone numbers for questions.
- Government fees: $1,750 each year or $3,500 for two years (both are renewable).
- Senior Officers must sign the registration form along with transmittal letter.

You will receive a copy of the SR after it is dispositioned. A copy of the approved SR must accompany the shipment, or the shipment will be rejected upon receipt.
