GOVERNMENT - Export Controls ITAR / OFAC
ITAR / OFAC Data Protection
Export control laws are federal regulations that control the conditions under which certain information, technologies, and commodities can be transmitted to any foreign national. The laws are implemented by the Department of State through the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), and the Department of the Treasury through its Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
What specific sensitive information must organizations safeguard under ITAR/OFAC?
Export control regulations affect technical data (information related to defense articles and defense services), not including information in the public domain. Also affected is a range of data that consists of, supports, describes, or accompanies the actual exported good or service, including:
· Items that appear on, or are closely related to, the U.S. Munitions List
· Information covered by an invention secrecy order
