MILPITAS, CA — FCT Assembly announces that it has received the official International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) registration from the US Department of State, Bureau of Political-Military Affairs. This registration documents the company’s dedication to adhering to the regulations that control the export and import of defense-related articles and services on the United States Munitions List. FCT Assembly
also has updated its registration for the International Standard ISO 9001:2008.
ITAR regulations were designed to control the information and materials of military-related technologies and ensure that military technologies are only shared with US persons unless approval from the Department of State is received via a special exemption. The registration of a company to comply with ITAR regulations allows them to work in conjunction with the US military, and expresses the company’s obligation to handle ITAR-protected products according to all regulations.
“This is just another step in FCT Assembly’s quest to become the leader in quality and customer service and meet all of our customer demands. Being ITAR registered certainly differentiates our Fine Line Stencil division from most of the other stencil houses in the U.S., as very few can offer this service,” said Mike Scimeca, President and CEO.
To qualify for ITAR registration, FCT Assembly met strict requirements for corporate structure, security, record keeping, and procedures for handling of sensitive military and intelligence applications.
To update its registration for the International Standard ISO 9001:2008, FCT Assembly demonstrated its ability to consistently provide products that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. The company aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
