ITAR Manufacturing

Fathom’s Technology Control Plan outlines policies and procedures designed to protect confidential product information. This plan insures compliance with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and other technology export control laws. As an important part of the supply chain, all customers can trust that their proprietary information will not be shared beyond the need-to-know for manufacturing purposes.

What is ITAR?

The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) are government regulations for defense and space-related exports. These regulations apply to policies and provisions for prohibited exports, imports and sales to and from specific countries. As outlined by the United States Munitions List, all exporters, manufacturers, and brokers of defense articles related to defense services and technical data must register. Examples of goods include missiles, aircraft  and design plans such as blueprints and diagrams. ITAR is specific to the United States and only U.S. citizens may access the services and products listed on the United States Munitions List (USML). This is because much of what is included on the USML is sensitive and should only be used in the best interest of the United States.

ITAR regulations are stringent and often too challenging for most manufacturers. This is mainly because any item or technology listed on the USML must be ITAR registered, including any supplies used to make that specific part. In other words, ITAR registration is easiest for companies who manufacture the part from beginning to end. For example, if a weapon was to be sold to the U.S. government, every part or component used to make that weapon should be sourced from an ITAR-registered business. For companies that outsource parts of their supply chain, this can be complicated and lead to multiple, exhaustive layers of verification.

What Happens if You are ITAR Non-Compliant?

If an ITAR-registered company falls out of compliance, they must pay significant fines and risk being removed from the United States Munitions List. Thus, it is better for an ITAR-registered manufacturer always to comply. ITAR violations can include up to $1,000,000 in fines per violation plus ten years jail time and loss of export licensing. Once registered, it is far better to be fully ITAR compliant than not.

ITAR Registered vs. ITAR Compliant

A company may claim to be ITAR compliant, but that does not always mean taking steps to become registered. If you are producing ITAR goods, it is crucial to ensure that all suppliers in your supply chain are fully registered and following all ITAR procedures. Not only is this important to maintain ITAR registration, but it is a matter of U.S. national security.

We are an ITAR-registered machine shop in full compliance with the U.S. DDTC. Security is a top priority and we are in full compliance with all ITAR regulations.

ITAR Registered

The U.S. Department of State’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), under authority established by the Arms Export Control Act (AECA), administers ITAR. ITAR regulates the manufacture, export and transfer of defense articles, information and services.

ITAR registration recognizes Fathom as a manufacturer fully capable of supporting all military and homeland security projects in the U.S. In accordance with ITAR requirements, we are entirely owned and operated by U.S. citizens.

We recognize the critical importance of securing proprietary, classified and confidential information from foreign interests.
