Arms Export Control Act
The AECA is implemented through the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), which prohibits the transfer of defense articles without a license. Every defense contractor should be familiar with the United States Munitions List and the key definitions of the ITAR. "Transfer" of any technical data or defense services - which may include simply showing drawings and plans for items on the Munitions List or providing training in how to manufacture or use an item on the munitions list - to non-United States persons, is a violation of the Arms Export Control Act.
Our attorneys can provide you with the information necessary to ensure compliance with these, and other important laws and rules regulating the use and transfer of United States technology.
