To ensure compliance with U.S. export law and regulations, the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls strongly advises that registered exporters and manufacturers have in place programs that assist in monitoring defense trade activities.
These programs should include a manual that articulates the company’s policy on and commitment to compliance with defense trade laws and regulations, and that outlines the procedures for dealing with licensing and compliance matters. Such a manual should also include the identification and duties of empowered and responsible persons, and procedures on record keeping and internal auditing.
To assist you, DDTC has outlined some elements that we believe should be included in your compliance program: Compliance Program Guidelines (PDF, 57KB).
