Lancaster, N.Y. -- Apple Rubber Products Inc. announced today the approval of the company's ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulation) certification, which demonstrates it is a compliant manufacturer and supplier for the United States Munitions List (USML) and registered with the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC).
Attaining ITAR compliance is a successful benchmark for manufacturing companies such as Apple Rubber, which recently also became TRAC (TRACE Registered Access Code) certified, demonstrating the company's participation in a global platform that captures, assesses and shares due diligence information on companies committed to commercial transparency.
"Having the ITAR certification is important because it gives the assurance to our customers that critical data will be protected when purchasing from our company," said John Tranquilli, Apple Rubber materials manager. "This verification provides a secure supply chain to our top-level customers."
The federal government requires all manufacturers, exporters and brokers of defense articles, defense services or related technical data to be ITAR compliant and registered with the State Department's DDTC. The approval has been an important goal for Apple Rubber as it recognizes that the supplier and manufacturer adheres to the guidelines of USML and provides information protection for all customers.
With the approvals of ITAR and TRAC, Apple Rubber is committed to enhancing the long-lasting relationships with customers who rely on the company's high-quality products and information sharing.
