ITAR Compliant TEam

ITAR is a set of regulations in the United States that controls the export and import of defense-related articles and services on the United States Munitions List (USML), which can include technologies that have potential military or national security applications. Suppose you patent a technology that falls under the USML (United States Munitions List) categories covered by ITAR. In that case, you must ensure compliance to prevent unauthorized disclosure or transfer of the technology to foreign entities.

Organizations engaged in international trade are responsible for understanding and complying with the ITAR regulations. Working with a patent search services team that is ITAR compliant accelerates your innovation process by staying ahead of the compliance regulations needed, helping you protect your intellectual property, navigate the complexities of export controls, and ensure that your technology’s journey from innovation to patenting to potential commercialization is compliant.
