Joint Certification Program

What is the Joint Certification Program (JCP)?

The Joint Certification Program (JCP) certifies Canadian and United States (U.S.) contractors for access to unclassified military technical data belonging to Canada's Department of National Defence (DND) and to the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD). This Program helps to protect controlled Unclassified Militarily Critical Technical Data (MCTD) and technology from common adversaries, but allows it to flow to certified Canadian and U.S. companies that have a legitimate need-to-know for business purposes. This program is effective in protecting the competitive edge of North American companies by ensuring that only eligible companies are provided with this data. This is done In accordance with DODI 5320.25
 “Withholding of Unclassified Technical Data and Technology from Public Disclosure”, and Canadian Technical Data Control Regulations.

The JCO:

  • is a jointly staffed office and the only DOD / DND agency that reviews and certifies the DD Form 2345.
  • provides customer support to defense contractors applying for certification.
  • receives, processes and maintains approximately 9,000 DD Form 2345s annually.
  • establishes JCP policy based on DOD / DND Directives.
  • consults and cooperates with government stakeholders in the development of common industrial security policies, procedures and technology controls.
  • partners with DOD legal counsel and federal law enforcement on debarment actions.

DD Form 2345 is used:

  • for U.S./Canadian defense contractors to obtain DOD / DND unclassified export controlled technical data.
  • to attend gatherings such as:
    • Symposiums
    • Program briefings
    • Meetings designed to publicize advance requirements of contracting agencies
    • Pre-solicitation, pre-bid, pre-proposal, pre-award conferences, workshops and tours
  • to request unclassified visits directly with other certified U.S. or Canadian defense contractors or U.S. and Canadian military facilities.
