The exported copy must be accompanied by a cover letter containing the applicant`s registration code, contract number and other relevant information. In addition, the cover letter for filing exported MLAs must contain a copy of the licence authorization as well as an original and additional copy of the cover letter containing the information required under Article 124.4(b)(1)-4) (e.g. B the identity of the alien and the parties involved, descriptions of defence items and estimated value, restrictions on the transfer of third parties, B. and other volumes of production and disposal). As stated in the Proposed Charging Letter, L3Harris breached this requirement by failing to “present a written statement on the MLA agreements concluded”. [11] Often, an approved ITAR agreement is not immediately signed by all parties. In this case, the U.S. applicant is generally unaware that they are not meeting the annual Requirement to Update the Status of Article 124.4(a) for unen executed agreements. If the ITAR agreement is not concluded within one year of approval, the applicant must submit to the DDTC/DTCL an annual written report summarizing the status of the agreement (the “Annual Progress Report”). The annual status report must be uploaded electronically in the corresponding license authorization (e.g. B authorization DSP-5) of the ITAR Agreement. Note that the applicant must continue to submit the annual status report until one of the following requirements is met: 1) the agreement is signed by all parties (ยง124.4(a)); or (2) a decision is taken not to conclude the contract (Article 124(5)).

Once the agreement has been fully executed by all parties, a copy of the executed ITAR agreement must be submitted electronically to DDTC/DTCL within 30 days of its entry into force. [9] Note that this is one of the necessary ITAR contract notifications that L3Harris has not entered into. In particular, L3Harris failed to “submit taa and MLA agreements signed with DDTC”. [10] Once an ITAR contract authorization has been issued, several compliance tasks must be accomplished, including: implementing reservations, executing agreements, submitting notifications and reports to DDTC/DTCL, maintaining balances, modifying files, and maintaining records. Overall, there are specific notifications to be provided to DDTC/DTCL or other governmental authorities for each approved ITAR agreement, including: in addition, in accordance with Article 124.5 of the ITAR DDTC/DTCL, the applicant must inform by formal letter of notification within sixty days of the decision, if the decision not to enter into an ITAR agreement is taken. The notification letter should contain the applicant`s registration code and ITAR contract number and must be uploaded electronically in the corresponding licence authorisation of the ITAR agreement. Like L3Harris, most companies often violate the requirement of Section 124.5 and do not submit the DNTC notification to DDTC. [13] ITAR approves three types of licensing agreements: 1) the Technical Assistance Agreement (“TAA”); (2) the Manufacturing License Agreement (“MLA”); and (3) the Storage and Distribution Agreement (“WDA”); In short, “ITAR agreements” means. [1] Agreements under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (“ITAR”) serve as a licensing instrument for the transfer of defense items, technical data, manufacturing know-how, and defense services between a U.S.

and a foreign party. Meeting the requirements of these agreements is a critical part of ITAR compliance, as indicated in the latest L3Harris Technologies, Inc. .
