Amendment to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations: Regarding Dual and Third Country Nationals
The Department of State is amending the text of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) to allow access to defense articles and services for dual and third country nationals of certain countries through revisions in procedures for technical assistance agreements and manufacturing licensing agreements. This regulatory change will reduce the burden on exporters of defense articles and on foreign parties to the agreements by reducing the number of individual Non Disclosure Agreements (NDA's) which must be executed and maintained on file.
