What is ITAR?

The International Traffic in Arms Regulations, or ITAR, are export controls overseen by the U.S. Department of State. These regulations apply to defense products, technical data, and services intended for military applications. ITAR controls the export of items specifically designed, modified, or adapted for military use. Companies dealing in controlled hardware, software, or technical data must comply with ITAR licensing requirements. ITAR aims to protect national security interests by regulating the export of sensitive defense technologies and information.

ITAR Compliance

Manufacturers must comply with International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) when acquiring defense-related projects. To deliver ITAR-controlled products or services, companies must implement compliance measures including access controls to restrict sensitive data, systems management procedures for maintaining secure IT infrastructure, and encrypted data transmission methods.

Achieving ITAR compliance requires manufacturers to take key steps such as appointing an empowered official as the internal compliance officer, conducting training to ensure employees understand ITAR requirements, establishing policies for properly classifying and securing controlled technical data, limiting access to sensitive information to only authorized personnel, and obtaining necessary licenses from the Department of State’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls.

Following proper export procedures for ITAR-controlled items and technical data is also essential. By implementing the necessary ITAR compliance protocols, manufacturers can qualify for defense-related contracts that require adherence to these regulations.

The Steps to get to ITAR Compliance

Blue themed steps to security

Spectra3D maintains International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) compliance in two key ways. First, we are registered with the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), the licensing body for ITAR under the U.S. Department of State. Our DDTC license authorizes the export of specific hardware items or technical data, referred to as defense articles, to eligible foreign countries.

Second, we implement internal compliance protocols. Before exchanging data, Spectra3D requires customers to self-certify whether their project contains export-controlled information or relates to a U.S. government contract. We establish secure workflows based on this classification to align with ITAR regulations.

For export-controlled projects, we use encrypted servers for data exchange and restrict access solely to confirmed U.S. citizen employees. Strict access controls and customer disclosures enable Spectra3D to maintain ITAR compliance and qualify for defense-related manufacturing contracts.

Spectra3D helped us develop our blog’s 2D robot mascot into a 3D figurine so we could take it with us to appearances. The 3D robot is a great addition to our table; we love having it and our readers enjoy seeing the mascots come alive.

Spectra3D helped me to better understand 3D printing technology, and lead me to the options that are best for my project.  With their help, I now have a 3D printable product that I am selling.  The assistance I received is invaluable.  Spectra3D is the go-to resource for 3D printing equipment and services in Asheville.
