If you deal in goods, services, or intellectual property included in the United States Munitions List (USML), you are responsible for ensuring that all related transactions conform to the stringent requirements of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). Considered within the sobering light cast by global terrorism, ITAR compliance is more important than ever. To observe the rules and avoid unnecessary delays, you must quickly, unerringly identify relevant products and services. You then have to apply for, manage, and track all necessary licenses. Moreover, you need to ascertain what restrictions, if any, apply to specific destination countries and business partners.
