As described in §124.1, an agreement approved by DTCL 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. The export or temporary import of defense articles (technical data or hardware) may be addressed in the scope of an agreement as well, but the provision of a defense service, transfer of manufacturing know-how or production rights, or establishment of a distribution point abroad is what distinguishes an "Agreement" from other forms of authorizations issued by DTCL.
