Announcing Valley Box's International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) Registration and Compliance to fulfill extensive contracts from Government Contracting Primes as a diverse sub-contractor.
For a company involved in the manufacture, sale or distribution of goods or services covered under the United States Munitions List (USML) or a component supplier to goods covered under USML, the contractual stipulation or requirement of being “ITAR compliance” means that the company must be registered with the State Department’s DDTC, if required, as spelled out on DDTC’s website and the company must understand and abide by the ITAR as it applies to their USML linked goods or services. The company themselves is certifying that they operate in accordance with the ITAR when they accept being a supplier to the USML prime exporter.
“In other words, to be ITAR Compliant, a USML company needs to Register with DDTC and know what is required of them to be in compliance with the ITAR and self certify that they possess this knowledge,” says Jim Becker, Senior Field Technician for Valley Box. “More and more companies are requiring that members of their supply chain be ITAR registered, being ITAR compliant is very important to Valley Box because we’re fulfilling more extensive contracts from Government Contractors.”
