AECA and ITAR Violations

The State Department reached an administrative agreement with Raytheon Company addressing 125 civil violations of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). Over the course of many years, Raytheon disclosed to the State Department ITAR violations largely consisting of failures to properly manage State Department-authorized agreements and temporary import and export authorizations. The violations included inaccurate tracking, valuation, and documentation of temporary exports and imports of controlled hardware, manufacture of such hardware by Raytheon’s foreign partners in excess of the approved amounts, and failure to timely obtain and submit required documents. Under the terms of a four-year consent agreement, Raytheon will pay a civil penalty of $8 million, half of which was suspended on the condition that Raytheon will spend that amount on remedial compliance measures.
