All manufacturers, exporters, and brokers of defense articles, defense services, or related technical data, as defined on the United States Munitions List (Part 121 of the ITAR) , are required to register with DDTC. Registration is primarily a means to provide the U.S. Government with necessary information on who is involved in certain manufacturing and exporting activities.

The Enterprise Development Network (EDN) is a strategic alliance between the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) and the private sector. Through a growing network of private sector organizations, EDN greatly extends OPIC’s ability to provide financing and political risk insurance (PRI) to more micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) doing business in developing countries.
OPIC assists U.S. companies by providing financing (from large structured finance to small business loans), political risk insurance, and investment funds.
The structure of EDN consists of three service providers. Loan and Political Risk Insurance Originators (Originators) serve as local service providers to micro, small-medium enterprises (MSMEs) to help develop the OPIC application package, refine marketing strategies, and draft or enhance business plans. Financial institutions serve as Designated Lenders to establish OPIC-backed lending facilities that are used to make loans to MSMEs or their affiliates for projects in OPIC-eligible countries. EDN Advisers are specialists in particular business sectors and geographic areas throughout the world and assist OPIC in credit underwriting and due diligence on OPIC-funded loans.

The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) supports both the development of novel technologies and the subsequent translation of those technologies into applications for the benefit of public health.

Lenders often will not provide medium- and long-term financing to buyers in emerging markets. The political and commercial environments in many foreign markets translate into high risk for many lenders. Moreover, credit from in-country lenders is often unavailable or prohibitively expensive to buyers. Thus, without financing, a U.S. exporter will not be able to make the sale. Ex-Im Bank's medium- and long-term financing support fills this void and enables U.S. exporters to compete with confidence worldwide.
