Reference: Manufacturer Registration Statement and Fee Submission

The Office of Defense Trade Controls Compliance received your registration statement and fee to
register as a manufacturer. We have reviewed your registration statement and your registration code is
M26673, which expires on 2022-07-31.
Any person who engages in the United States in the business of either manufacturing or exporting
defense articles or furnishing defense services is required to register and keep that registration current with
this office pursuant to the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) and the International Traffic in Arms
Regulations (ITAR Part 122). Registration serves as a precondition to submitting an application for an
export license or other approval from the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), or to use export
exemptions. This registration does not satisfy the requirements for registering as a broker pursuant to
ITAR Part 129.

As you are the senior officer empowered to sign the registration statement, we ask you to maintain
records consistent with ITAR Section 122.5 regarding: 1) The key senior officer listed on the registration
who will oversee the compliance program and be responsible for designating the direct employees who
will serve as “empowered officials” at their place of employment, and 2) A list of qualified, direct
employees who will serve as “empowered officials” by name, position, business unit, phone and fax
numbers and email addresses. Please note that third parties (individuals who are not direct employees,
such as consultants, subcontractors or outside counsel, for example) cannot serve as “empowered

ITAR Section 122.5 requires you to maintain records concerning your registration and the
manufacture, acquisition and disposition of defense articles; the provision of defense services; and
information on political contributions, fees, or commissions furnished or obtained, as required by ITAR
Part 130. Records maintained shall be available at all times for inspection and copying by this office or by
Customs officials. To maintain such records, managers, supervisors and employees need appropriate
training on AECA and ITAR requirements and must understand the individual and organizational
ramifications of failure to comply. Ramifications may include shipment delay and/or shipment seizure by
Customs and Border Protection, loss of export privileges, or criminal charges.
