Bartlett’s Annotated ITAR Updated Concerning Addition of South Sudan to ITAR Section 126.1

Section 126.1 of the ITAR – Prohibited Exports, Imports, and Sales to or from Certain Countries, was amended today to add South Sudan to the list. Therefore, a revised edition of Bartlett’s Annotated International Traffic in Arms Regulations (the “BITAR”), dated 14 February 2018, is available for download.  The BITAR prints to 361 pages on 8 ½” x 11” paper.  This new BITAR version also renumbers all footnotes, re‑starting footnote numbers in each BITAR Part.  It also updates the AECA Appendix and Index entries related to South Sudan.

How is the “BITAR” different from the official ITAR available for free on the Internet?

The Annotated ITAR, more popularly known as “Bartlett’s Annotated ITAR (BITAR)” is the only version of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (22 CFR 120-130) available in Microsoft Word and PDF, and fully updated with the latest amendments.  The BITAR contains the full text of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, 22 C.F.R. §§ 120-130, with features added by the author, including a Table of Contents, footnotes, section histories, appendixes containing government guidance, user aides, and an Index.

The BITAR will be amended every time the official ITAR is amended, usually within 48 hours of publication in the Federal Register, and subscribers will be notified by email that a new edition is available for download at no extra cost.  Hence, the best way to ensure you have an up-to-date copy of the ITAR is buying this annual subscription to the BITAR from our webshop.
