buyCASTINGS.com, Inc. Receives ITAR Part 122 Registration Mar 17, 2011
For those not familiar with ITAR, it is the International Traffic in Arms Regulations). In January, 2011 buyCASTINGS.com, Inc. received its registration from the Office of Defense Trade Controls Compliance, Compliance and Registration Division (CRD).
Companies who are manufacturers, exporters, and brokers of defense articles, defense services, or related technical data as defined on the United States Munitions List (USML), (Part 121 of the ITAR) are required to register with the DDTC (US Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls). This means that the company has the knowledge and understanding to abide by the ITAR as it applies to the USML linked goods or services.
Having this registration is a means to provide the US Government with necessary information on who is involved in certain manufacturing and exporting activities. What makes this essential is that even though a company registers with the DDTC to sell products or services in the ITAR industry, the company also must not violate ITAR compliance regulations. In other words, the company itself is certifying that it is operating in accordance with the ITAR when they accept being a supplier for the USML prime exporter.
Today, many companies are requiring that members of their supply chain be ITAR Registered. This can be with contracts, purchase orders, request for proposals, and more. buyCASTINGS is a trusted partner in the casting industry and can match casting requirements to a global manufacturing network. The ITAR registration is an additional value on which our customers can focus and have complete confidence that buyCASTINGS has the knowledge and expertise to export their product.
