DOD Distribution Statements

The Defense Department utilizes a series of Distribution Statements for technical data that describe the level of distribution authorized. These statements are labeled A-F and X.  Statement A is the least restrictive, signifying the data is approved for unlimited public distribution and Statement F the most restrictive which limits “further dissemination only as directed by (ref. DOD author)”. X signifies that the technical data is authorized for private entities if export authorization is obtained as well as for U.S. Government agencies.  If technical data is both under the jurisdiction of the ITAR and marked with DOD Distribution Statement A, it is a permitted export under ITAR exemption [22 CFR 125.4(b)(13)]; however the associated hardware would still require export licensing for export. It is important to review the distribution statements on all technical data received to determine the controls required for export.
