ITAR Compliance within the Public Sector
The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) is a set of US Government regulations on the export and import of defense- related articles and services. The e-manual is a lengthy document outlining all paperwork that is required for compliance. Without ITAR compliance, an organization in the defense industry that does business in multiple countries is breaking the law. Documentation covers a multitude of requirements, and must be kept up to date. It is exhaustive, time consuming, and requires valuable human resources to create and maintain. But how do organizations know they have done all that is required?

ITAR compliance is a way of doing business for many organizations. Despite the requirements, organizations must be continually aware of and comply with the requirements outlined in the formal compliance manual. Noncompliance or not fulfilling the requirements can cost organizations not only business but also revenues. Organizations must review their information annually for changes. The obstacle many organizations face is finding the information to be vetted. Concept Searching solutions find the information, regardless of where it is stored.
