It’s important for your business to meet government/military packaging specifications. Mil-Spec refers to standardization requirements outlined by the US Department of Defense. These standards dictate how labeling and packaging should be handled for all military shipments.
DD250 is a Material Inspection and Receiving Report document that is submitted to the Department of Defense. The DD250 is used to record goods received by government contractors and can also be used for invoicing. WAWF stands for Wide Area Workflow and is the government's online system for receiving and processing the DD250.
The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) are sets of rules that dictate how governmental agencies acquire goods and services from government packaging companies and contractors. International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) are export control regulations intended to ensure that government and military shipments don’t get into the wrong hands. NewStream is ITAR-certified, and as a qualified military packaging service, ensures you are ITAR compliant.
Understanding all the different military packaging requirements is our job and we know them inside and out so you don’t have to. This saves time and money that you can use to hit your sales objectives and continue on a positive growth trajectory.
All manufacturers, exporters, consultants, distributors, and brokers for defense services or technical data must be in compliance with ITAR. Being ITAR-compliant means strictly adhering to the ITAR compliance regulations. These regulations cover military shipments, data access, control measures, and licensing, as well as technical data and information security. Violating ITAR regulations can result in civil and criminal punishments in excess of $1,000,000 and 10 years in prison. Trusting an ITAR-compliant company like NewStream with your military and government packaging needs reduces the stress and time needed to both understand and execute ITAR compliance requirements.
