The Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc., a U.S.-based cryogenic service provider to the global marketplace, announced the approval of its International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) registration from the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Political-Military Affairs. ITAR is a collection of regulations created to control the manufacture, export, and transfer of defense articles, information, and services. ITAR works to keep defense technology and information within the hands of U.S. persons only. The only exception to this is when the Department of State grants special approvals for foreign subjects.
The Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc. has put in place controls and procedures to act in compliance with ITAR issued regulations. The U.S. Department of State’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) now recognizes the Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc. to work with all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. The DDTC facilitates the ITAR registration under authority created by the Arms Export Control Act (AECA). The Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc.’s approval for ITAR registration recognizes the company’s capability to handle items controlled by the U.S. Munitions List and be in compliance with governmental and international regulations. The company became ITAR registered as of October 13, 2009.
“As we see our customer base expand within the aerospace, defense and optical markets; it was a natural step to seek ITAR registration in order to support our customers on their most advanced and sensitive projects,” stated Robin A. Rhodes, President of the Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc. “Through ITAR Registration, we will be able to better serve our customers in these industries, while assuring our clients of the highest levels of confidentiality and security,” Rhodes added.
The Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc. commonly supplies specialty cryogenic processing services for sensitive components used in military, aerospace and defense applications. “We are the only cryogenic deburring and deflashing operation with ITAR registration and we expect this technology to grow even more from the weapons and defense sector,” stated Ryan M. Taylor, Product Marketing Specialist of the Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc. Services that are expected to expand due to ITAR registration include cryogenic treatment, liquid helium processing, thermal cycling, shrink fitting, cryogenic deflashing and cryogenic deburring. “ITAR registration is yet another way that we distinguish ourselves from other providers in the marketplace,” Taylor added.
