Department of State DECCS Program

Partner Bio

The Defense Export Control and Compliance System (DECCS) is The Directorate of Defense Trade Controls’ (DDTC) new online system where industry users may conduct their International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) regulated business with the Department.

Specifically DDTC’s Licensing application is housed in DECCS and Empowered Officials are required to have a digital certificate in order to sign and submit license applications.

IdenTrust has been providing digital certificate solutions for DDTC’s customers for years and provides ECA Certificates for use with DECCS.

VERY IMPORTANT: Please use your DECCS Account email address in your IdenTrust certificate application as these email addresses must match to avoid DECCS rejection.
