Cryogenic Institute Receives ITAR Registration
Cryogenic Institute of New England Inc., a U.S.-based cryogenic service provider, received 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. It is intended to keep defense technology and information within the hands of U.S. persons only, except when the Department of State grants special approvals for foreign subjects.
Cryogenic Institute of New England 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 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’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.
Worcester, Mass.-based Cryogenic Institute of New England Inc. commonly supplies specialty cryogenic processing services for sensitive components used in military, aerospace and defense applications. It is the only cryogenic deburring and deflashing operation with ITAR registration. 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.
