X-Border Permits

A solution for the arms and controlled goods industry

With Aerospace Maritime and Defence companies achieving significant growth, they are also experiencing an increased pressure from government to implement comprehensive and effective Internal Compliance Programs (ICP).  As a result, many Arms and controlled goods manufacturers have found that their processes and information systems cannot support the additional business requirements and government regulations.

A study has shown that an effective internal compliance program is nearly impossible without the underlying support of some kind of information technology system.
