Quickparts Compliance & Certifications:

ITAR Registration

At Quickparts, we know that how we deliver your projects is as important as what we deliver, so we pride ourselves on adherence to best practices in all aspects. This drive includes compliance with government regulations and industry standards in all our locations.

What is ITAR?

International Traffic in Arms Regulations, commonly known as ITAR, encompasses export control regulations overseen by the United States Department of State (DOS). These are the State Department controls that regulate defense products, technical data, and services and apply to anything intended for defense-related applications or military use.

ITAR regulations take effect when manufacturers acquire a customer or project with deliverables that would fall under ITAR classifications. To deliver the project, the manufacturer must prove ITAR compliance, which include access controls (who can access controlled information & how they do so), systems management (systems maintenance, including updates, security, and encryption), and data transmission (how the company shares sensitive data to deliver the project). This compliance requires a few steps.

Steps for ITAR Compliance

First, Quickparts is registered through the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC). A DDTC license is the export authorization from the U.S. State Department for specific hardware items or technical data controlled by ITA), referred to as a defense article, to be exported to a specific country. This is often referred to as being “ITAR Registered.”

The second part is maintaining ITAR Compliance. We ensure export control compliance in a variety of ways, including having our customers self-certify whether a project contains export-controlled information or not before exchanging any data. At Quickparts, we require customers to tell us whether the project contains export-controlled information or is a part of a U.S. government contract.

We determine the project workflow based on whether the project is export-controlled or non-export controlled, which helps us maintain compliance with ITAR regulations. For our export-controlled customers, we utilize a secure server for information exchange and ensure that all information is available only to U.S. citizens who have been confirmed through HR.
