ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) is a U.S. Export Control Law and Regulation, administered by the Department of State (Office of Defense Trade Control)1. It is important to emphasize that members of any kind of aerospace project may deal with products, information or situations in which they have to ensure ITAR compliance. However, this AAQ module is intended only as an overview tool and does not provide all substantive information needed to make a responsible decision related to ITAR compliance. Please contact NASA experts and legal experts if you are dealing with a situation that may require ITAR compliance. A link to the original law (US Department of State website) is provided at the end of the module.
Note: This module was strongly based on reference 1: a material produced by Bob Tucker, who worked in the NASA Office of External Relations. It is available online at this link.
