The U.S. government’s International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) governs the dissemination of a broad array of information. Among other requirements, they prohibit disclosing or transferring regulated technical data to a foreign person, whether in the United States or abroad. Companies that export products-particularly in the high-tech, aviation, and military sectors-must put in place mechanisms that prevent violations of U.S. export laws. These regulations hold companies accountable for the acts of anyone that accesses technical data. Penalties for export violations can be severe-$1M and 10 years in prison per violation, prohibitions against future exports by the company, and the loss of government contracts.
