JCP Registration

Although there are numerous items bought by DOD for which the data to manufacture is available to anyone who wishes to see it, there is another class of items for which the information controlled by DOD is considered militarily sensitive. The DOD considers it critical that they keep the supply chain for these items within the US and Canada. The registration form is only one page long and asks primarily for your business address and that you certify the custodian of the technical data is a US or Canadian citizen. JCP registration is free.

The U.S.-Canada Joint Certification Program (JCP) established in 1985 to allow United States (U.S.)/Canadian contractors to apply for access to Department of Defense/Department of National Defence (DOD/DND) unclassified export controlled technical data/critical technology on an equally favorable basis in accordance with DODI 5320.25 "Withholding of Unclassified Technical Data and Technology from Public Disclosure", and Canadian Technical Data Control Regulations.

JCP restricted items require a JCP registration in order to obtain the technical data package, have a bid considered and receive an award.

Here are the steps required to get your JCP certification:
