Maintaining U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) Compliance
MRC maintains a valid Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) registration however MRC’s DDTC registration confers no DDTC registration or other certification on Customer.
If Customer or any of your Authorized Users (also referred to herein as “You”) stores and processes data regulated under International Traffic in Arms Regulations, 22 CFR 120-130 “ITAR” (referred to herein as “ITAR-Regulated Data”) in using the MRC Services, you must conform to the following ITAR requirements, in addition to any other ITAR or export control restrictions that may be applicable to you:
- You are an individual or entity that qualifies as a U.S. Person under the applicable regulations.
- You have and will maintain a valid Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) registration.
- You have full export privileges under U.S. export control laws and regulations and are not a denied or debarred party or otherwise subject to sanctions.
- If your export control privileges are revoked, suspended or terminated, or you otherwise become subject to sanctions or are barred from maintaining export-controlled data, you will immediately remove ITAR Regulated Data and other export-controlled data from the MRC Services.
- You must maintain an effective compliance program to ensure compliance with applicable U.S. export control laws and regulations, including ITAR, if applicable.
Note If you store or process any ITAR-Regulated Data using the MRC Services the owner of any MRC Services (US) account must be a U.S. person.
