  2. (*) Identification and security classification of sensitive technological information or restricted information contained in the equipment, major components, subsystems, software, technical data (performance, maintenance, R&M, etc.) documentation, training devices and services to be conveyed with the proposed sale. Also, provide a brief justification/explanation of why the information is sensitive.

  3. (*) Briefly describe the possible consequences if the hardware, publications, software, etc. are lost to a technologically advanced or competent adversary.

 

When the release of classified information or sensitive technology is within the classification guidelines for disclosure to a foreign Government as stipulated in National Disclosure Policy (NDP-1), the following information appears as the last two paragraphs:

  1. (*) A determination has been made that the recipient country can provide substantially the same degree of protection for the sensitive technology being released as the U.S. Government. This sale is necessary in furtherance of the U.S. foreign policy and national security objectives outlined in the Policy Justification.

  2. (*) Release of this technology is within the disclosure authority delegated for [insert recipient country] as stipulated in the National Disclosure Policy (NDP-1). This paragraph is always classified.

 

When an exception to the NDP-1 is granted to a foreign Government for release of classified information or sensitive technology relating to the current or a previous sale/transfer of specific MDE, defense articles or services, or design services, the following information appears as the last two paragraphs:

  1. (*) This sale is necessary in furtherance of the U.S. foreign policy and national security objectives outlined in the Policy Justification. Moreover, the benefits to be derived from this sale, as outlined in the Policy Justification, outweigh the potential damage that could result if the sensitive technology were revealed to unauthorized persons.

  2. (*) An exception to the National Disclosure Policy (NDP-1) was granted for [insert recipient country] for the release of [insert classification] information pertaining to (description) under Record of Action Number [insert number] dated [insert date]. This paragraph is always classified.
