Temporary Import License Exemption
22CFR 123.4(a)(1) of the ITAR allows for the temporary import (and subsequent export) without a license, for a period of up to 4 years, of unclassified U.S.-origin defense items for the purpose of servicing, repairing, or one for one replacement. In order to use this exemption, the items must be imported into the United States citing the license exemption. Should the item be returned to the U.S. without citing the license exemption, additional authorization/licensing must be obtained before re-exporting. Therefor it is important to advise the foreign party to cite the exemption when they return items for servicing, repair or replacement.
