As of November 2007 Crescent is is officially ITAR registered with the United States Department of State, Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, Office of Defense Trade Controls Compliance, Compliance & Registration Division. (That should just about cover it.)
What this does is assure you that Crescent has procedures in place to maintain the integrity of the US specialty technical data related to defense articles. ITAR is designed for the protection of custom information for specially designed parts. Standard parts, even those sold under Military numbers that are accessible by public purchase, are not subject to these regulations. Again, it is for the protection of Custom Designed Parts, with regards to exporting.
If you require a statement of certification for your files, please let us know, we will be more than happy to comply.
