US Directorate of Defense Trade Controls AECA Debarments

Companies and individuals prohibited from participating in export of defence articles and services as a consequence of violation of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA)

This dataset contains entities from the Statutory Debarments and the Administrative Debarments lists from the US State Department's Directorate of Defense Trade Controls.

The Statutory Debarments are for individuals and companies who have been convicted of violating or conspiracy to violate the Arms Export Control Act (AECA).

Administrative Deparbments may be imposed by the department for violations of the AECA/ITAR, as specified in 22 CFR §127.7(a), upon resolution of enforcement proceedings.

The statutory debarment list includes only persons who are subject to statutory debarment for convictions of violating or conspiracy to violate the AECA. This is a small subset of persons who may be debarred or ineligible to participate in the export of defense articles and defense services. In other words, the list does not include persons that may be ineligible under other AECA and ITAR prohibitions or restrictions.

Although the statutory and administrative debarment lists on this website are periodically updated, notices published in the Federal Register are considered the authoritative source for debarment information. DDTC Debarred Parties note
