US International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)


United States of America Department of State logo
AWS GovCloud (US) supports compliance with United States International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). As a part of managing a comprehensive ITAR compliance program, companies that are subject to ITAR export regulations must control unintended exports by enabling access to only authorized persons. AWS GovCloud (US) provides an environment that is physically located in the US, and access by AWS personnel is limited to US Citizens, thereby allowing qualified companies to use AWS to transmit, process, and store protected articles and data subject to ITAR restrictions. The AWS GovCloud (US) environment has been audited by an independent third-party assessment organization (3PAO) to validate that proper controls are in place to support customer export compliance programs.
