TUCSON, AZ, June 22, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Snell & Wilmer attorney, Richard Katz, recently sat down with The Offshore Group to discuss the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and its effect on aerospace manufacturers in Mexico
During the session, Katz explains that the ITAR is a set of federal regulations that, under the authority of the U.S. State Department, sets out the US compliance requirements for the sale, the manufacture and the cross border trade in items and technology on the U.S. munitions list. ITAR regulates the production of military aerospace and the defense industry items in Mexico.
According to Katz, "The reason that the U.S. regulations often apply to aerospace manufacturing in Mexico
, is because of the cross border nature of trade between U.S. and Mexico, and the entire aerospace industry's international footprint."
Individuals that are interested in this aspect of Mexico manufacturing are invited to listen in to the podcast that can be found in the "Cost Reduction Showcase" section of The Offshore Group's homepage.
