Additional DD2345 Certification Tips

    • Find Out if You Already Have a Current DD2345 Certification
      To determine if your employer already has a certification on file that extends to all employees at your location, visit the website here, contact the Joint Certification Office at 800-352-3572, or send an email to Please note: Every location of a company MUST have its own certification number. For example, if your organization’s headquarters are in Alexandria, VA, but you work at an office in Denver, CO, your certified DD2345 MUST have the address for the Denver office. One certified DD2345 at the headquarters does not blanket all locations of an organization. University certification is by department and not University wide. The only exception is if the University’s Department of Research/Sponsored Programs or Security/Export Control office has a current DD2345 form – this will include everyone at that University.  By regulation, the ITAR restricted Conference proceedings will be sent to the address on the DD2345 and you will need to acquire the proceedings from the individual listed as data custodian
