Compliance Guidelines Published


The guidelines are intended to provide an overview of an effective compliance program and an introduction to defense trade controls, including information on the laws and regulations the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), administers.

The Guidelines provide information on the elements of an effective ITAR Compliance Program (ICP) and how to design and implement an ICP for organizations that manufacture, export, broker, or temporarily import defense articles and defense services described on the United States Munitions List (USML).

The elements are specifically focused on assisting organizations developing a program to comply with the ITAR. Many organizations engage in activities that fall under the jurisdiction of multiple U.S. trade laws and regulations. Therefore, organizations should ensure their ICP functions effectively within the context of a holistic export trade compliance program
