The International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) is a set of United States government regulations that control the export and import of defense related materials. ITAR regulations dictate that information and material pertaining to defense and military related technologies (for items listed on the U.S. Munitions List) may only be shared with U.S. persons unless authorization from the Department of State is received or a special exemption is used.
The Controlled Goods Program (CGP) strengthens Canada's defense trade controls through the mandatory registration and regulation of businesses and individuals who examine, possess and/or transfer controlled goods, including ITAR items, in Canada. CGP is officially recognized by the United States government as a Canadian equivalent program to ITAR. Because of Pixus' CGP Certification, U.S. companies can share ITAR restricted information with CGP cleared employees at Pixus. Pixus Technologies' CGP Certification number is 26768.
