ITT's Night Vision Division Debarred by DDTC for Three Years

The State Department's Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) published in today's Federal Register a three year statutory debarment of ITT Corporation's Night Vision Division resulting from the company's recent criminal guilty plea and penalty for violating the Arms Export Control Act and the ITAR. As a result, ITT's Night Vision Division is prohibited from exporting defense articles, related technical data or providing defense services until March 28, 2010 unless reinstated earlier by DDTC.

In determining the scope of the debarment, DDTC found that ITT had taken "appropriate steps" to mitigate any law enforcement concerns and therefore decided to debar only the ITT-Night Vision Division, the ITT entity responsible for the export control violations.

In addition, DDTC found that "based on the underlying nature of the violations" the debarment period will be for a period of three years. However, DDTC will consider ITT's reinstatement request in one year. However, any request for reinstatement will only take place following a thorough review of the circumstances surrounding the conviction and a finding that appropriate steps have been taken to mitigate any law enforcement concerns.

U.S. manufacturers and exporters of defense articles and services should be aware that debarred persons are generally ineligible to participate in any activity regulated under the ITAR. As a result, ITT Night Vision's Division is prohibited from participating directly or indirectly in activities regulated by the ITAR, including any brokering activities, and in any export from or temporary import into the United States of defense articles, related technical data or defense services.
