International Traffic in Arms Compliance

AWS GovCloud (US) region supports US International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) compliance. As a part of managing a comprehensive ITAR compliance program, companies subject to ITAR export regulations must control unintended exports by restricting access to protected data to US Persons and restricting physical location of that data to US land.

AWS GovCloud (US) provides an environment physically located in the US and where access by AWS Personnel is limited to US Persons, thereby allowing qualified companies to transmit, process, and store protected articles and data under ITAR. The AWS GovCloud (US) environment has been audited by an independent third party to validate the proper controls are in place to support customer export compliance programs for this requirement.
