ITAR Compliance within the Public Sector
The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) is controlled by the US State Department and is responsible for the export and import of defense articles and services. The e-manual is a lengthy document outlining all paperwork that is required for compliance. Without ITAR compliance an organization who does business in multiple countries in the defense industry is breaking the law. The documentation covers a wide multitude of requirements and every organization must keep it 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 continually be aware of and comply with the requirements outlined in the formal compliance manual. Noncompliance or not fulfilling the requirements can cost an organization not only business but also revenues. Updated once per year every organization must review their information for changes. The obstacle many organizations face is finding the information to be vetted. Concept Searching finds the information regardless of where it is stored.
