Milplex receives CGP registration, certification


Milplex Circuit (Canada) Inc. has successfully earned CGP (Controlled Goods Program) certification, a domestic industrial security program administered by the Controlled Goods Directorate (CGD) of the Department of Public Works and Government Services Canada. CGP is similar to ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulation) in the USA.

The objective of the program is to safeguard controlled goods within Canada and prevent controlled goods from being accessed by unauthorized persons. The CGP enforces the Defense Production Act (DPA) and is legislated by the Controlled Goods Regulations (CGR).

The official descriptions of controlled goods are found in the Schedule (Section 35) of the DPA and must be read in conjunction with the Export Control List, published by the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada.
