Guidelines For Preparing Technical Assistance Agreements

Question #1: Can a defence item manufactured or manufactured during the duration of an agreement (TAA or GWG) using technical data or defence services received under the agreement be transferred without further DDTC authorization to a foreign person who was not a party to the agreement at the expiry of this agreement? Companies should also carefully consider the language used by DDTC in these two FAQs and indicate that this ITAR-controlled activity can only be pursued “among the same foreign signatories, sub-licenses and end-users” and “for the same authorized end-use.” Therefore, the scope of the expiry of the LPI or TAA (as well as all restrictions, conditions or other restrictions of the agreement) continues to restrict the parties who may participate in the activity controlled by THE ITAR at the expiry of the agreement and what those parties can do. Any new part (for example. B customer or end user, foreign beneficiary, sublicensing or new foreign site for these parties) or any new activity (. B for example, using the technical data provided previously or the know-how required to manufacture a new defense item) may require additional authorization from DDTC. Some areas of shadow remain, for example. B whether continued manufacturing would require a continued “use” of ITAR-controlled technical data in a particular case, with the exception of the continued use of technical data that DDTC has highlighted in these FAQs for other purposes (e.g. B design, development and engineering activities). In all circumstances, companies covered by these requirements should ensure that their activities are licensed in accordance with the ITAR and ensure that they meet registration and reporting obligations. Question #1: when a technical assistance agreement (TA) expires, can foreign parties continue to use and exchange technical data previously authorized for export between the same signatories, under-licensed and end-users? In two new FAQs, DDTC states that once an applicable GWA or TAA expires, the non-AMERICAN asius The parties may continue to use and exchange ITAR-controlled information and the know-how they have received, but any additional technical assistance or technical data controlled by ITAR from the US parties would require further approval from DDTC. However, there are funds that cannot be obtained through a renewed GW or TAA that can meet the authorization requirement for additional U.S.
