Downloadable Exporter Tools
Searchable, annotated copies of the two main USG export regulations -- the ITAR and the EAR -- are available for you to download at the links, below. To aid understanding, we at ElL have reformatted this ITAR with an outline-indented format that makes the regulation much easier to understand. For reasons of tradition, U.S. statutes and regulations tend toward a minimalist formatting, with all levels of paragraph numbering and lettering sharing the left margin. This can get bewildering when there are four or five levels of logical subservience, and conventional indent-formatting is more easily followed. So we downloaded and assembled the complete ITAR, converting it to indent-formatting, and then added extensive internal hyperlinks for rapid ease of navigating through the document. We didn't do that with the EAR, both because it is already in a more readable format, and because reformatting a 1,740-page regulation is untenable. That said, we think you'll find our version of the EAR not only searchable, but overall much more user-friendly.

Our versions of regulations are always to be considered tools, however useful, and you should always check against the official versions before finalizing any export analysis, because the USG is constantly updating these export regulations. Also, any of our annotations inside these documents are merely notes we have made for our own purposes in servicing a variety of clients. In some cases they are tentative, and in all cases the wise reader will take them with a grain of salt. Here are links to the raw, official USG versions of the ITAR and EAR.
Our latest International Traffic In Arms Regulations ("ITAR"), with updates included through April 15, 2021. This is in searchable PDF format. Annotated and automated for easier reading. See description of the annotations on the page just after the cover page.

You can download a PDF copy of our internally hyperlinked e-ITAR by clicking on the named link in the previous paragraph, or on the icon to the right. If you prefer, you can download an
HTML version of the ITAR by clicking here. Or a Zip-containerized HTML version here. Contact us if it will not download, or generally with any questions.

Note: The revised final firearms USML categories I, II, & III are now included in this edition, and many firearms parts/components have moved their export-jurisdiction to the EAR.

And this is our latest Export Administration Regulations ("EAR"), updated through Mar 8, 2021, and including the newest implemented Russian sanctions. There are double-asterisks inserted at some 1,000 important spots, including all 598 ECCNs. As with our electronic ITAR, you should read the page-after-cover for details on how to efficiently search the EAR and its Commerce Control List.

Other regulations that may impact your export compliance needs are downloadable at these links, below. We often put a vertical link down the left-hand margin of regulations we regularly review, which is linked as a quick return to a common page, such as a table of contents. So hover your cursor at the left-margin to see. Remember to read the page-after-cover-page in our versions of the ITAR and EAR for more detailed descriptions of how we have supercharged the documents to make your analyses more efficient.
