ITAR-Compliant Suppliers Are Vital to Aerospace and Defense

ITAR-Compliant Suppliers Are Vital to the Aerospace and Defense Industries

International Traffic in Arms Regulations, ITAR, is an important export control law in the U.S., designed to control access to defense-related technology. ITAR is critical in the aerospace and defense industries to ensure important military technology does not fall into the wrong hands. It is critical aerospace and defense contractors follow all ITAR regulations meticulously and adhere to the rules applying to items and services on the United States Munitions List (USML) and the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR).

Aerospace and defense manufacturers are known for continual research and development, often relying on new technology and products for a good portion of annual revenue. In light of this continual development, it is critical to partner with companies that share the same goals and stringent policies on maintaining strict confidentiality and control of sensitive, U.S. defense technology. In fact, failure to comply with ITAR compliance may result in serious fines and pose a significant liability risk to defense contractors.

Security and Reliability Critical for Defense Suppliers

In addition to the high expectations of aerospace and defense suppliers to maintain a stringent quality system adhering to AS9100 rev D regulations, additional security measures and reliability are critical factors when evaluating suppliers. A supplier that can show their process on managing sensitive data, including all forms of communication printed and digital as well as careful tracking of products and materials, is important for consideration to the A&D supply chain. 

Following a strict quality policy isn’t enough – most suppliers can tout this, although adding the value of ITAR compliance with convincing data to back it up is what sets apart the chosen suppliers from the rest. As the world is a global marketplace, protecting U.S. data, including information and products, from international access is of critical importance.
