The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) §§ 122.4 and 129.8 require registrants to notify the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls of the Department of State in the event of a change in registration information, in the event a foreign person or entity acquires a registered entity, or if the registrant is a party to a merger, acquisition, or divestiture (MAD) of an entity producing or marketing ITAR-controlled items. Based on certain conditions enunciated in the ITAR, respondents must notify DDTC of these changes at differing intervals – no less than 60 days prior to the event and/or within 5 days of its culmination. This information is necessary for DDTC to ensure registration records are accurate and to determine whether the transaction is in compliance with the regulations (e.g. with respect to ITAR § 126.1); assess the steps that need to be taken with respect to existing authorizations (e.g. transfers of licenses); and to evaluate the implications for US national security and foreign policy. This information collection is estimated to take an average of 2 hours to execute, and DDTC expects to receive approximately 1,700 responses per year; therefore, the total burden for this collection will be 3,400 hours per year.
