International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) Training

Updated: Jun 20, 2019

All US manufacturers, exporters, and brokers of defense articles, services, and related technical data must be ITAR compliant. There is no third-party certification for ITAR compliance. Your company must develop appropriate systems to ensure that the rules are followed.

What’s at stake? ITAR violations can result in:​

  • civil fines up to $500,000 per violation

  • criminal fines of up to $1 million and 10 years of jail time per violation

  • debarment (loss of export license)

This one-day training with Mike Allocca of Allocca Enterprises will help you understand ITAR, starting with what products can be subject to ITAR through the application and registration process and finishing with licensing and other areas of control. At the end of the training, you will know what is required and where to go for assistance. In addition, you will have a copy of the ITAR regulations and complete reference material moving forward.

Topics Covered:

  • your role and responsibility as an exporter of defense products, services and technical data

  • who is a US person and who is subject to ITAR

  • how to look up your product on the US Munitions list (USML)

  • different license types, exemptions, and what to expect if you require a license

  • D-Trade and how to use it

  • how to comply with manufacturing license and technical assistance agreements

  • record keeping requirements

  • how to avoid violations

Who Should Attend?

This class is ideal for beginners new to ITAR and a thorough refresher course for those who have never had formal training in ITAR.

Registration Fee

The cost to attend is $150 per person, which includes continental breakfast, deli lunch, and training materials. We are pleased to be able to offer this training to Maine exporters for significantly less than typical registration costs because of funding through a federal grant from the Office of Economic Adjustment.
