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), 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. BITARs are sold as soft copies in Microsoft Word, which are emailed to subscribers every time the regulations are amended, plus occasional updates to add footnotes, cases, agency guidance, and Index entries. The latest ITAR amendment is of 4 Oct 2018: 83 FR 50003-50007: Regulatory Reform Revisions to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations. Hence, the best way to ensure you have an up-to-date copy of the ITAR is buying this annual subscription to the BITAR.
We do not sell bound copies of the BITAR, but subscribers who prefer a hard copy may print a copy themselves for inserting in loose-leaf binders or contact FCC for special prices if you would like to receive loose-leaf copies.
