EGC Enterprises is now an International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) Registered Manufacturer

EGC Enterprises, an engineering and manufacturing company specializing in flexible graphite, has achieved certification from the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) as an International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) registered manufacturer, under ITAR Registration Code M41256.ITAR certification is the export control regulation which is overseen by the United States Department of State. It is used to control items on the U.S. Munitions List and the Missile Technology Control Regime Annex, and applies to defense-related applications for military end-use.

ITAR requires that all manufacturers receiving a customer request for defense articles are compliant. Certified manufacturers must annually receive or renew an application with the DDTC explaining the types of defense activities with which it will be involved and may not allow foreign nationals access to any data or information. It also requires that contractors and subcontractors working on component projects are ITAR compliant as well.

According to John Popovich, Vice President of EGC, “While EGC has long been in compliance with ITAR regulations, formalizing our registration opens up additional opportunities to serve the defense industry with our seals, gaskets and packings. Whether we are supplying seals for valves used on nuclear-powered aircraft carriers, or providing sealing components used on jet engines, we welcome the opportunity to work with customers that deal in ITAR controlled parts. Furthermore, we are especially proud to support defense related products that play a vital role in assisting the brave men and women of our armed services.”
