ITAR Manufacturing
Secure part production for sensitive projects with Fathom’s rigorous ITAR compliance

The U.S. Department of State’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), under authority established by the Arms Export Control Act (AECA), administers ITAR. ITAR regulates the manufacture, export and transfer of defense articles, information and services. ITAR registration recognizes Fathom as a manufacturer fully capable of supporting all military and homeland security projects in the U.S. In accordance with ITAR requirements, we are entirely owned and operated by U.S. citizens. We recognize the critical importance of securing proprietary, classified and confidential information from foreign interests.

Fathom is ITAR Registered.
What Does That Mean?

The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) controls the manufacture, sale and distribution of defense and space-related articles and services contained in the U.S. Munitions List (USML). Any company that handles, manufactures, designs, sells or distributes items on the USML must be ITAR compliant.

The goal of ITAR is to track military and defense sensitive material and to keep that material out of the hands of U.S. enemies. Noncompliance can result in heavy fines along with significant damage to your company’s brand and reputation.

To be ITAR compliant, a company must be registered with the State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) agency. The registered company is responsible for operating in accordance with ITAR requirements.

What Steps Does Fathom Take to be ITAR Registered?

Cybersecurity // ITAR-registered Fathom facilities meet or exceed ITAR cybersecurity requirements for network security and recordkeeping.

Documentation // ITAR-registered Fathom facilities follow strict processes for control of project documentation. ITAR project documents are stored in red folders, for example, to differentiate them from non-ITAR projects.
