Our products and sales are controlled by the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the Export Administration (EAR). Additionally, L3Harris’ membership in U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Customs Trade Partnership (CTPAT) program augments the existing Trade Compliance program.
L3Harris has established comprehensive training materials ensuring that all employees receive Trade Compliance training relating to their function. The company’s approach to strategic licensing ensures L3Harris knows the product, the end use, and the end users involved in the sale.
L3Harris codified strategic licensing in a specific corporate procedure. Moreover, L3Harris maintains a thorough restricted party screening process across the enterprise to check for prohibited business partners and transactions.
We complete jurisdiction and classifications via a robust process to determine applicable regulatory controls of our products. Additionally, the Trade Compliance function reports to our legal department ensuring proper legal controls and compliance protocols are followed.
“Trade compliance requires the cooperation and shared responsibility of all L3Harris employees. Every employee is required to take annual trade education and must do his or her part to ensure no transaction occurs that is contrary to the trade regulations. Any questions or knowledge of an actual or suspected compliance issue or violation must be immediately reported to Global Trade Compliance Professionals, who are likewise certified on an annual basis.” — Bill Wade, Vice President, Global Trade Compliance, L3Harris
