General Information and Useful Links

Every American exporter must comply with the U.S. Export Administration Regulations (EAR). They are administered by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. The EAR regulates the export, reexport, and transfer of commercial and dual-use items that are not already covered by the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). The Department of State’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) is responsible for regulating the export of defense articles and services that fall under ITAR and the Arms Export Control Act (AECA). Below are some useful links for general information sites that have the ability to drill down to better understand these regulations and the processes necessary to comply.
