ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) and the EAR (Export Administration Regulations) are export control regulations run by different departments of the US Government. Both of them are designed to help ensure that defense related technology does not get into the wrong hands.

The Arms Export Control Act requires that all manufacturers, exporters, temporary importers, and brokers of defense articles (including technical data) as defined on the United States Munitions List (ITAR part 121) and furnishers of defense services are required to register with the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) as described in ITAR part 122 (part 129 for brokers). It is primarily a means to provide the U.S. Government with necessary information on who is involved in certain ITAR controlled activities and does not confer any export or temporary import rights or privileges. Registration is generally a precondition for the issuance of any license or other approval and use of certain exemptions.

Acclaim is registered with the U.S. Department of State DDTC for the purposes of meeting the requirements associated with ITAR compliance.
