This policy is intended to facilitate the transit of individuals carrying GFE defense articles on their person (or in personal baggage) in furtherance of a U.S. government contract overseas. All return of temporarily exported defense articles will be subject to their original export authorization and subject to all other ITAR regulatory requirements. This is to prevent the return of additional defense articles not covered by a DSP-73 subject to this policy by personnel attempting to use the policy as a way to import items that are not authorized. If your personnel deploy with an M-4 rifle on a DSP-73 and a hand receipt, they must return with that rifle, they cannot return with an M-16 rifle and that was not previously authorized. CBP (if present) will check carried equipment against the DSP-73 and the hand receipt. Any anomalies will require further screening and delay.
