Full compliance with the U.S. ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) and determination of the license need are the crucial steps before an export of a defense article and before providing a defense service to non-U.S. persons. Even if there is no exportation planned, in almost all military end-use projects there will be a need to ensure the safeguarding of the technical data against the access of unauthorized persons. Also, in some cases, there may be a license exemption eligible for the case with certain conditions and limitations.
