ITAR: International Traffic in Arms Regulations

International Ceramic Engineering was certified ITAR compliant starting August 15th 2014.

The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) is a set of United States government regulations that control the permanent and temporary export and import of defense-related articles and services.

The ITAR's purpose is to protect U.S national security and advance U.S foreign policy goals. The Department of State Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) is responsible for the interpretation and enforcement of ITAR.

ITAR ensures that information and materials regarding defense and military related technologies are only shared with United States individuals or foreign (non-US) nationals granted special authorization by the Department of State.

United States organizations and/or individuals face severe fines if they are found to have provided access to ITAR regulated defense articles, services or information to unauthorized foreign entities.

ITAR is available from the Government Printing Office (GPO) as an e-document or as part of the annual hard copy publication of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) which includes all amendments made to the ITAR since the last annual publication. You can find out more about ITAR by visiting the U.S. Department of State website:
