In two new FAQs, DDTC explains that once an applicable MLA or TAA expires, non-Americans. The Parties may continue to use and share the ITAR-controlled information and know-how they have received, but any other ITAR-led technical assistance or technical data from the US Parties would require further approval from the DDTC. However, there are funds that are insufficient to obtain a renewed MLA or TAA that, in certain circumstances, may meet the approval requirement for continued assistance from the U.S. parties to an expired agreement. B for example by applying for a PSD-5 license for “limited” defense services or by using a government exemption. For example, Article 125.4(b)(4) of the ITAR allows a U.S. Party to provide copies of certain types of previously authorized technical data to the same recipients. Another exception in section 125.4(b)(5) applies to “basic” operational, maintenance and training information relating to a defence item that has already been lawfully exported or authorized to be exported to the same consignee. Certification and record-keeping requirements apply, and there are instances where these exceptions cannot be used. (1) A description of the defence items involved, including test and support equipment, covered by the United States Munitions List. This includes, where applicable, military nomenclature, federal inventory number, nameplate data, and any control numbers under which defense equipment was developed or purchased by the U.S. government.
Only the defence items specifically listed in the Agreement may be exported under the exemption provided for in Article 123.16(b)(1) of this Subchapter. Some grey areas remain, for example. B whether continued manufacturing in a particular case would require continued “use” of the technical data controlled by ITAR beyond the continued use of the technical data that DDTC designates as legal in these FAQs for other purposes (e.B. design, development and engineering activity). In all circumstances, entities covered by these requirements should carefully assess whether their activities are permitted under ITAR and ensure that they comply with their record-keeping and reporting obligations. a) The Arms Export Control Act requires Congress to give its approval to a manufacturing license agreement or technical assistance agreement within the meaning of Articles 120.21 or 120.22 a certification for the manufacture of important military equipment abroad (see § 120.7 of this subchapter) is subject, which is concluded with a country regardless of the dollar value. In addition, any manufacturing or technical assistance license agreement that provides for the export of significant defense equipment within the meaning of § 120.8 of this subchapter shall also require certification if the requirements of § 123.15 of this subchapter are met. (1) All licenses and other permit applications require a Technology Transfer Control Plan (TTCP) approved by the Department of Defense and an Encryption Technology Control Plan approved by the National Security Agency. Drafts that reflect preliminary discussions with both authorities must be attached to the submission of the proposed licence application or technical assistance agreement, and the letter of transmittal required by Article 124.12 must identify U.S. government officials familiar with the preparation of PTTC projects.
The TTCP must require the U.S. person or entity involved in the export to notify the Department of Defense in advance of any meeting and interaction with a foreign person or entity involved in the export, and requires that U.S. person or organization to certify within 30 days of launch that it has complied with this reporting requirement. Article 123.22(b)(3)(ii) of the ITAR requires the applicant to notify DDTC/DTCL that exports commenced prior to the first export of technical data or DDTC/DTCL defence services by means of a notification letter to be downloaded to the approved DSP-5 vehicle of the basic agreement or first modification under which the transfer of technical data or defence services took place.  TAAs and MLAs allow U.S. nationals to export technical data controlled by ITAR and “defense services” (and to exchange non-U.S. persons outside the U.S.). An MAA may also approve the provision of manufacturing rights or know-how. Members of Parliament and TAAs typically have a term of 10 years, and questions often arise about activities that can and cannot continue when an agreement expires without receiving a new or realigned agreement. .
