Amendments to ITAR's Brokering Requirements
Persons or companies registered as "brokers" under the ITAR should be aware that significant changes to the brokering provisions of the ITAR went into effect on October 25, 2013.
As a result of the changes to Part 129 of the ITAR, certain parties that were previously considered to be brokers under the ITAR may no longer be required to register with DDTC as a broker.
