Government Regulations Compliance

US exporters must comply with the Arms Export Control Act , the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the United States Munitions List (USM). They must also secure an Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) from  the United States Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and/or register on the US State Directorate of Defense Trade Controls.

PENT staff is skilled in ensuring our clients are fully compliant with the various US regulations and receive appropriate certifications.

Technology Transfer

We define Technology Transfer as the importation of non US technology into US Government or commercial entities.  It may be for use or re-sale.  Issues frequently include Foreign Ownership/Control/Influence (FOCI).  PENT works with you and the end user to resolve any issue.

PENT consultants will help Government users and businesses develop a path to successful technology acquisition.  PENT consultants can help you  determine if international opportunities work for your firm.
