Controlled Goods Program Registered IT Support
If your organization deals in “controlled goods”, your IT support company needs to be registered under the Controlled Goods Program, in order to provide any services which would or might give them access to anything considered a controlled good.
According to the Government of Canada:
“Controlled goods are primarily goods, including components and technical data that have military or national security significance, which are controlled domestically by the Government of Canada and defined in the Defence Production Act.
In summary, controlled goods are:
- goods, including components and technology (for example, blueprints and technical specifications in paper or electronic format), with strategic significance or national security implications, regardless of where they are manufactured
- defense articles originating from the United States that are controlled by the United States Munitions List—part 121 of the United States International Traffic in Arms Regulations, as amended from time to time
- goods, regardless of where they are manufactured, that are manufactured from technical data originating from the United States and are controlled by the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, as amended from time to time
Unless excluded or exempt from registration, individuals and organizations must be registered in the Controlled Goods Program. The program, managed by Public Services and Procurement Canada, allows registrants to legally examine, possess, or transfer the controlled goods”
BSC Solutions Group Ltd. is a registered company and currently provides IT services to companies handling controlled goods. A copy of our certificate is below.
If you are dealing in controlled goods and do not have a Controlled Goods Program Registered IT Support Company, you are likely in violation of the Controlled Goods Regulations. Give us a call and we would be happy to discuss your IT requirements.
