U.S. Export Controls and ITAR

National security concerns are at a high-water mark, and government scrutiny of domestic and international transactions involving controlled assets has greatly increased under export control laws. Significant civil and criminal penalties can result from violating the confusing patchwork of export control laws governing the possession, trade, and export of controlled assets.
