DDTC Registration:

ITC Strategies assists companies engaged in international trade of defense articles, technologies and services with registration with the U.S. Department of State’s, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), and if necessary the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

If any of your manufacturing, export or brokering activities are controlled by the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), then you have a registration requirement with DDTC. Prior to making an export of ITAR controlled products/technology, or utilizing an ITAR license exemption, you must first be registered with DDTC.

Registration is primarily a means to provide the U.S. Government with necessary information on who is involved in certain manufacturing, exporting and or brokering activities. Registration does not confer any export rights or privileges, but is a precondition for the issuance of any license or other approval for export.

There is a U.S. Government fee associated with Registration. DDTC has adopted a three-tier registration fee schedule based on certain factors associated with the registrant. Therefore the fee differs from company to company.

Manufacturer and/or Exporter Registration:

ATF Registration:
