All countries regulate the trade in arms and defense articles as a matter of national security, and seek to maintain a security advantage over potential global threats. In the US, these goods and technologies are governed by the International Trade in Arms Regulations ('ITAR') such that all traders in these critical goods partner closely with the government to support these security objectives. Companies may inadvertently fail to comply with some of the legal requirements, which can pose serious risks to our nation and our people. Knowing that the rules are and how you can comply is essential, notably in these uncertain times.
