Bartlett’s Annotated ITAR (“BITAR”) was updated on 19 nov 2017. The last amendment to the official ITAR was on 30 Aug 2017: 82 FR 41172-41173: “Temporary Modification of Category XI of the United States Munitions List,” but the revised edition of the BITAR adds a discussion of the definition of “temporary” at § 120.19; adds a footnote to § 120.31 indicating addition of Montenegro to NATO countries; adds a “[sic]” footnote to § 120.45’s Note to paragraph (g), indicating that the note contains a dead link to INCOSE standards; and updates several other footnotes and Index entries.
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.
