ITAR compliance and the great regulatory maze

September 03, 2020

Substantial penalties wait for global defense and aerospace manufacturers and contractors that fail to comply with International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), which exist to track military- and defense-sensitive material and to keep that material out of the hands of adversaries. Many organizations opt to mitigate this regulatory-heavy environment by using manual, labor-intensive internal processes or employing third-party compliance entities. Another approach: Enterprise software built on ITAR principles can help organizations overcome compliance concerns and ensure data, supply-chain information, products, and services are available to a global audience.
