IQC - The ISO Pros
of Monroe, LA & ISO 9001 Experts
The International Traffic in Arms Regulations, or more commonly referred to as the ITAR, is the public agency that handles every activity in the export and the import of any weapons and defense-related articles and services.
All activities from the manufacturing, the delivery, the assembly, down to the sale, and the distribution of any defense and space-related articles need to go under the ITAR. So, if you are a business or an organization involved and engaged in this type of business activity, it’s just right to have your company regulated and registered.
The Business of What?
Can’t still wrap your head around what types of products and services are talked about in the ITAR? It’s literally everything that is listed, defined, and enumerated in the United States Munitions List or the USML.
It can range from a wide variety of products and services from guns, ammunition, tanks, rocket launchers, spacecraft, military hardware – to the images, plans, maps, sketches, and other forms of documentation that can be transcribed as “technical data” are included in the business.
Is ITAR Required?
Among the many standards in the ISO book, the ITAR Compliance is one of the most needed and the most sought after compliance programs because of its high, lucrative, and absurd fees. In case you’re wondering if it’s required – it is; and it can, as a matter of fact, incur some penalties and sanctions should you get caught not conforming or being compliant to it.
The penalties can go as high as $500,000 per violation sought listed on the civil fines; as well as criminal fine that can uproot up to $1 million. Not only that, the jail sentences can also be an option for you if you caught violating.
Even if the ITAR was the one that established and published the said standard, it’s not necessary for you to get your ITAR Certification from them. As a matter of fact, there are a lot of other companies and institutions that can provide ITAR Certification and Implementation – and here in the city of Monroe, companies, and organizations trust none other than us at IQC – the ISO Professionals.
