Abstract of Proposed Collection

    The export, temporary import, and brokering of defense articles, 
defense services, and related technical data are licensed by the 
Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) in accordance with the 
International Traffic in Arms Regulations (``ITAR,'' 22 CFR parts 120-
130) and Section 38 of the Arms Export Control Act.
    ITAR Sec.  126.18 eliminates, subject to certain conditions, the 
requirement for an approval by DDTC of the transfer of unclassified 
defense articles, which includes technical data, to or within a foreign 
business entity, foreign governmental entity, or international 
organization that is an authorized end-user or consignee (including 
transfers to approved sub-licensees) for defense articles, including 
the transfer to dual nationals or third-country nationals who are bona 
fide regular employees directly employed by the foreign consignee or 
end-user.
    To use ITAR Sec.  126.18, effective procedures must be in place to 
prevent diversion to any destination, entity, or for purposes other 
than those authorized by the applicable export license or other 
authorization. Those conditions can be met by requiring a security 
clearance approved by the host nation government for its employees, or 
requiring the end-user or consignee to have in place a process to 
screen all its employees and for its employees to complete a Non-
Disclosure Agreement that provides assurances that the employee will 
not transfer any defense articles to persons or entities unless 
specifically authorized by the consignee or end-user. ITAR Sec.  
126.18(c)(2) also provides that the technology security/clearance plans 
and screening records shall be made available to DDTC or its agents for 
law enforcement purposes upon request.

requirement is required to be sent to the Directorate of Defense Trade 
Controls, it may be sent electronically or by mail according to
