As of October 13, 2009, we are an International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) registered company. We are proud to announce the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Political-Military Affairs decision to approve our ITAR registration. ITAR is a set of regulations created to control the manufacture, export and transfer of defense articles, information, and services. These regulations work to keep defense technology and information within the hands of U.S. persons only. The U.S. Department of State is the only body that can grant special approvals for outside subjects.
We are now the only cryogenic service provider that we know of that is an ITAR registered company. This will better help us serve our defense industry customers with their most sensitive projects. Our company has put controls and procedures in place to act in compliance with ITAR issued regulations. The U.S. Department of State’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) now recognizes the Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc. to work with all branches of the U.S. military. The DDTC enforces ITAR registration under authority created by the Arms Export Control Act (AECA).
Any ITAR related projects will be protected with the highest levels of security and confidentiality at the Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc. It is expected that defense, aerospace, and optics industry suppliers will be better served by our company with the addition of ITAR registration.
We have many customers and potential customers that require ITAR registered vendors. Our services including cryogenic deburring, cryogenic deflashing, cryogenic treatment, liquid helium processing, thermal cycling and shrink fitting may now be used by customers with ITAR related projects. That way, their projects are protected and confidential while receiving our high-quality cryogenic services. We take pride in this new development and will continue to better serve our customers in any way possible.
