Laser Components Canada earns ITAR JCP certification

Sept. 2, 2020
The ITAR certification allows the company to review unclassified Department of Defense-controlled, military-critical technical data, as may be required to participate on bids for U.S. and Canadian military projects.

Laser Components Canada (LCC; Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC, Canada) has been granted International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) certification under the United States/Canada Joint Certification Program (JCP). ITAR is the regulatory regime in the U.S. that restricts and controls the export of defense- and military-related technologies, safeguarding U.S. national security and further U.S. foreign policy objectives.

The certification allows LCC to review unclassified Department of Defense-controlled, military-critical technical data, as may be required to participate on bids for U.S. and Canadian military projects. It removes a long-standing barrier, thus contributing to LCCs future growth through potential new markets that were previously not accessible. It speeds up the process of engaging with technical laser designers facilitating free and open discussions. 

“The significance of this certification demonstrates our commitment to adhere to the strict provisions spelled out in the JCP, and removes impediments to reviewing sensitive technical military data,” states Jeff Britton, CEO of LCC. “This provides LCC opportunities to open up new markets for our products.”
