Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    True or False: Exporting ITAR/EAR controlled data to foreign persons usually requires a license.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Exporting ITAR/EAR controlled data to foreign persons usually requires a license because ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) and EAR (Export Administration Regulations) are regulations set by the U.S. government to control the export of certain sensitive technologies and information. These regulations restrict the transfer of controlled data to foreign persons, and a license is typically required to ensure compliance with these regulations. The license ensures that the export is authorized and that appropriate safeguards are in place to protect national security and prevent unauthorized access to sensitive information.

    True or False: The owner contract never controls whether technical data is ITAR/EAR controlled.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    If the contract has restrictions on data distribution, then ITAR/EAR could control. Contracts are not always explicit when it comes to export controls. The contract may be silent on export issues, but it is still the Law.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    True or False: Under ITAR, Technical data does not include blueprints, drawings, process specifications, photographs, plans, instructions and documentation.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Under ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations), technical data does include blueprints, drawings, process specifications, photographs, plans, instructions, and documentation. This means that these types of information are subject to export control regulations and require proper authorization and compliance measures when being shared or transferred to foreign persons or entities.

  • 4. 

    True or False: It is not a violation of ITAR to e-mail technical data to a fellow co-worker, even if that co-worker is not a naturalized citizen or green-card holder.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is a violation of ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) to e-mail technical data to a fellow co-worker who is not a naturalized citizen or green-card holder. ITAR regulations restrict the transfer of defense-related technical data to non-U.S. persons, including foreign nationals, without proper authorization. Therefore, sending such data to a co-worker who does not meet the citizenship or green-card requirements would be a violation of ITAR.

Therefore, both roles are involved in developing the Technology Control Plan.

    • A.

      Through sales at news stands and bookstores.

    • B.

      At libraries open to the public or from which the public can obtain documents.

    • D.

      Through a notebook locked in a secured building.

    Correct Answer
    D. Through a notebook locked in a secured building.
    Explanation
    The ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) Public Domain Exception allows technical data to be considered public domain if it has been published and is generally accessible to the public. The formats that would help the data fall under this exception are sales at news stands and bookstores, availability at libraries, and patents available at patent offices. However, a notebook locked in a secured building would not meet the criteria of being generally accessible to the public, so it would not help the data fall under the ITAR Public Domain Exception.

    True or False: Items on the U.S. Munitions list are controlled under the ITAR.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    A. True
    Explanation
    Items on the U.S. Munitions list are controlled under the ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations). The U.S. Munitions list includes defense articles and services that are designated as defense-related items. These items are subject to strict export controls and regulations to protect national security and prevent unauthorized access to sensitive technologies. The ITAR is the set of regulations that governs the export and import of defense articles and services, and it includes the U.S. Munitions list as a key component. Therefore, the statement "Items on the U.S. Munitions list are controlled under the ITAR" is true.

The EAR is a set of regulations that governs the export and re-export of certain items from the United States.

Therefore, the statement "True" is the correct answer.

    ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) is a set of US government regulations that control the export and import of defense-related articles and services. It prohibits the transfer of military technology and information to foreign nationals without proper authorization. In this case, all the options listed could potentially fall under the control of ITAR. Being hired to teach military tactics to Canadian nationals involves sharing sensitive military knowledge with foreign individuals. Schematics for a naval warship and metallurgical studies of weapons capabilities both relate to defense-related technology and could be subject to ITAR regulations. Therefore, the correct answer "None of the above" suggests that all the options could be controlled by ITAR.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When an export of technology or source code is "deemed" to take place, it means that it is considered as an export even if it occurs within the United States. In this case, the correct answer is True, indicating that when technology or source code is released to a foreign national within the United States, it is still considered an export. This is because the release of such information to a foreign national, regardless of the location, is subject to export control regulations and restrictions.
