Guidance on Compliance with ITAR

November 15, 2009

The U.S. Coast Guard issued an updated advisory concerning the placement of firearms on U.S. vessels to defend against or deter pirate attacks in high-risk waters. The advisory summarizes issues related to compliance with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), the Gun Control Act, and the National Firearms Act, among others. Meeting the various conditions and obtaining the necessary permits is not easy, but it is no longer impossible. Port Security Advisory 4-09 (Rev 2) (11/4/09).
