What Is ITAR?

Conducting business with government agencies, such as the Department of Defense, requires adherence to many rules and regulations. One of these is the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, commonly known as ITAR. 

So, what is ITAR exactly?

This program controls the manufacture, sale and distribution of defense-related articles and services, as defined on the United States Munitions List (USML). ITAR restricts access to physical materials (paperwork, parts, components) and technical data (plans, photos, drawings) to U.S. citizens only. According to the U.S. government, all manufacturers, exporters and brokers of defense articles, defensive services or related technical data must be ITAR compliant.

Ensure Your Data Is Protected

At Joslyn Manufacturing, we know that confidentiality and security are of the utmost importance when dealing with controlled and confidential information, which is why we monitor the distribution of physical assets, such as sample parts and documented procedures. 

All electronic files are password protected and encrypted, ensuring this sensitive data is secured by limited access. Our system security is monitored by an outside company and scanned daily for security threats. 

We’re ITAR registered and included on the Department of State’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) list of companies who are permitted to deal in USML transactions. We understand that manufacturing ITAR components means that we need to manage and make all parts we produce in-house in our Macedonia, Ohio, facility. 

We take the necessary steps to protect your data and your parts. Still have questions? Contact us today!
