V2 Systems Is Now ITAR Registered. What does this mean for you?

by Erik Briceno

We here at V2 Systems have recently received our ITAR registration, which is an important prerequisite in providing services to defense contractors. Being ITAR registered and providing managed IT services to federal defense contractors is a unique qualification — one that we will make the most of when providing service to your organization. Here’s how.

What Is ITAR?

ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) is a strict program directed by the U.S. Department of State, regulating the manufacture, export and import of U.S. military and defense-related equipment, services and information. It also restricts sensitive information and technologies to only be shared with U.S. citizens, unless special approval is granted. Companies receiving ITAR registration must implement and adhere to significant procedures and controls to protect technologies with the goal of safeguarding U.S. national security.

In short, if it has to do with U.S. defense secrets, ITAR prevents it from falling into the wrong hands.

What Does It Mean to Be ITAR Registered?

Being ITAR registered isn’t the same thing as claiming to be ITAR compliant. ITAR registration is an official “stamp of approval,” for lack of a better description. Now that we’re registered with the U.S. government, we’re required to keep that registration current in order to offer defense services. This is strictly enforced by the U.S. Department of State.

How Does Our Being ITAR Registered Help You?

V2 Systems Is Now ITAR Registered. What does this mean for you?Now that we have been ITAR registered, it means that we have been officially recognized by the U.S. government as being fully capable of supporting all military and homeland security projects in the U.S. in accordance with these strict but necessary requirements. V2 Systems takes this seriously, and you can rest assured that we have your best interests at heart when we do business with you — as well as that of the U.S. government.
