    Course Overview

    Fundamentals of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations for Non-Military Space Activities

    Synopsis:

    The International Traffic in Arms Regulation (“ITAR”) has a significant impact on most involved in non-military space activities (as well as those involved in military space activities), including U.S. and certain foreign satellite operators, satellite manufacturers, satellite payload/part/component manufacturers, producers of space scientific instruments, engineering services firms, NASA and ESA contractors, academic researchers, commercial spaceport operators, and insurers -- as well as those involved in private spaceflight/space tourism. A basic understanding of the ITAR can make the ITAR manageable. This one-day course will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of the ITAR for those whom the ITAR affects, but who do not work with ITAR compliance on a daily basis. Engineers, program managers, scientists, academic researchers, salespersons, contract managers, attorneys, and executives will all benefit from this course.

    Key Topics:

    • Why the International Traffic in Arms Regulations apply to non-military space activities
    • Scope of the ITAR as relates to non-military space activities
    • The ITAR regulatory process and licensing
    • Foreign national employees of U.S. entities and third country national employees of foreign entities
    • Managing ITAR compliance to minimize program disruption
    • Update on recent ITAR developments and current U.S. export reform efforts

    Who Should Attend:

    U.S. and certain foreign satellite operators, satellite manufacturers, satellite payload/part/component manufacturers, producers of space scientific instruments, engineering services firms, NASA and ESA contractors, academic researchers, commercial spaceport operators, and insurers -- as well as those involved in private spaceflight/space tourism.
