US International Traffic in Arms Regulations

The United States Government (US) controls access to US defence technologies via the Arms Export Control Act (AECA). The AECA is implemented by the US Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) through the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).

Before the US Government grants you approval to transfer goods or technology under ITAR, you will be required to guarantee that you will uphold these obligations:

  • US technology (including data) must not be used for any purpose other than authorised unless prior Department of State approval has been obtained;
  • US technology (including data) must not be transferred by any means to a company or individual in Australia or overseas without Department of State approval; and
  • Australian products manufactured using US technology (including data) must not be transferred to a company or individual in Australia or overseas, without Department of State approval.

We have some detailed information on ITAR, including the appropriate points of contact for Defence or industry personnel.

For more information on US re-export controls, please go to the US Department of State Directorate of Defense Trade Controls website.
