Defense (ITAR / EAR Registered)

What is ITAR / EAR?

The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) are two important United States export control laws that affect the manufacturing, sales and distribution of technology. The legislation seeks to control access to specific types of technology and the associated data. The reason it is important is that it ensures that all documentation and physical execution of your applicable project are handled correctly by MTM in accordance to these laws. Shops not registered introduces the risk your proprietary information and materials could be compromised.

The Department of State oversees ITAR and determines which items and services according the United States Munitions List (USML). Its purpose is preventing unclassified defense-related items from falling into the hands of hostile governments or groups.

ITAR has several implications for companies involved in the manufacture, sale, or export/import of defense-related items. In other words, any company having contact with defense-related articles, service or technical information is subject to ITAR and requires licensing by the State Department.

You would expect certain products to fall under the oversight of ITAR such as weapons, munitions or military vehicles. Other items are not so apparent. These include software, technical data and certain services that may include maintenance, repair or testing. This also includes items such as protective shelters or personnel equipment.
