Revisions of Part 120 of the ITAR

News & Blog

On September 6, 2022, the Department of State is amending the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) to better organize the purposes and definitions of the regulations. This rule consolidates and co-locates authorities, general guidance, and definitions. This rule restructures part 120 of the ITAR to better organize the definitions previously found in that part and other locations throughout the ITAR and to consolidate provisions that provide background information or otherwise apply throughout the regulations. In addition, this rule adds text not previously found in the ITAR and makes clarifying revisions to existing text. This rule is intended to be the first in a series of rulemakings that will further streamline and clarify the subchapter.
