We have a potential Defense industry related customer that requires suppliers to be ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) compliant.  We're looking for some advice on how to proceed from a molder who may have already achieved ITAR compliance.  Any information, guidance, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Please contact me at 262-784-3120, ext. 109 or

Joy, if you use the "Search" function of the MAPP website on the blog, there has been other postings on this issue.  Here are a couple:

"We are registered with the State Department, and we export ITAR regulated parts.  I recommend going to the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) website at and contact the help desk.  If you do not directly export defense articles, you may not need to register, but only they can give you that answer and it depends largely on the part or component you are manufacturing.  Also, you can download the complete ITAR at that same website.  It is a long read, but it does spell out who needs to register and what is covered." You may want to call Sean Bitts at MXL at 717-569-8711 or give him a quick email at"

Also, John Passanisi of PRD has offered to help MAPP members as they are ITAR certified.  His email is John.Passanisi(AT)
