Fall under the jurisdiction of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), and are subject to the export control laws of the U.S. Government. Export or retransfer of Rifle Plates or Helmets with Accessories by any means to any foreign end user, or for any other end use, whether in the U.S. or abroad, without the written approval of the U.S. Department of State, is prohibited.

There is often an exemption for Rifle Plates for a U.S. person taking their personal protection with them in their luggage, and returning the armor to the US.  For the requirements, click here. One of the forms required may be found here.

Penalties for transgressions of export regulations can be severe, so be sure to exercise careful due diligence.

Level III Rifle Plates, Level III-A and Level II vests, and Ballistic Helmets (without Rails or Night Vision attachments) are controlled by the Bureau of Industry & Security (BIS). These items can often be exported with the appropriate export license exemption, but only when going to approved countries. Some countries, or larger quantities, may require an export license. See the BIS website
