U.S. Department of State
The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)
The Department of State is responsible for the export and temporary import of defense articles and services governed by 22 U.S.C. 2778 of the Arms Export Control Act («AECA», see the AECA Web page) and Executive Order 13637. The International Traffic in Arms Regulations («ITAR,» 22 CFR 120-130) implements the AECA. The ITAR is available from the Government Printing Office (GPO) as an annual hardcopy or e-document publication as part of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and as an updated e-document.
The Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (e-CFR) is a regularly updated, unofficial editorial compilation of CFR material and amendments published in the Federal Register. The updated, but unofficial, version of the ITAR provided by e-CFR is linked below.
