To align registration fees with the cost of licensing, compliance and other related activities, the Department adopted a three-tier registration fee schedule in September 2008, and modified the fee requirements for brokers who consolidate their broker registration with their manufacturer/exporter registration on October 25, 2013, to account for amendments to ITAR Part 129.* The schedule is as follows:
Note: *Effective October 25, 2013, registrants who consolidate their broker registration with their manufacturer/exporter registration on a single DS-2032 Statement of Registration are no longer required to pay a separate broker registration fee. Registration consolidation may only occur on a manufacturer/exporter registration. Registrants are not able to consolidate a manufacturer/exporter registration to an existing broker registration. Stand-alone brokers and brokers who do not consolidate their broker registration with their manufacturer/exporter registration are still required to pay the first tier fee of $2,250.00, For more information on registration consolidation and changes to ITAR Part 129 click here for registration and brokering frequently asked questions.
