The U.S. Government views the sale, export, and re-transfer of defense articles and defense services as an integral part of safeguarding U.S. national security and furthering U.S. foreign policy objectives. Authorizations to transfer defense articles and provide defense services can help meet the legitimate needs of friendly countries, however, the U.S. strictly regulates exports and re-exports of defense items and technologies to protect its national interests and peace and security of the broader international community. As described in §124.1, an agreement approved by Defense Trade Controls Licensing is required for a U.S. person to provide a defense service to a foreign person, an authorization to manufacture defense articles abroad, or to establish a distribution point abroad for defense articles of U.S. origin for subsequent distribution to foreign persons. 

Please join us for an interactive discussion of Export Authorizations for Defense Trade & Services, including Licensing and Technical Assistance Agreements (TAAs). Questions related to this topic are encouraged in advance and can be sent to naita@naita.org for inclusion in the presentation if received by February 2. 

The Export Authorizations discussion will be led by Marc Binder, co-founder and principal partner with International Trade Compliance (ITC) Strategies, an export/import trade compliance business, which offers a wide range of services from one-time compliance assessments to the development of complete corporate compliance programs.
