Certification Requirements

Citizenship

Turbine Engine Technology Symposium attendance is limited to U.S. citizens. All U.S. citizen attendees are required to sign the citizenship portion of the Turbine Engine Technology Symposium Registration Form.

Options include:

  • U.S. citizen or national by birth in the U.S. or U.S. territory/commonwealth
  • I am a U.S. citizen or national by birth, born to U.S. parent(s), in a foreign country
  • I am a naturalized U.S. citizen
    • Certificate of Naturalization is given to a lawful permanent resident after he or she fulfills the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
  • I am a derived U.S. citizen
    • Derivative citizenship refers to citizenship acquired from a U.S. citizen parent or parents, depending on the law in effect at the time of a person’s birth.
What is the difference between a Certificate of Citizenship and a Certificate of Naturalization?

Certificates of Citizenship and Naturalization both serve as proof of U.S. citizenship, but the eligibility requirements differ. A Certificate of Citizenship is available to people who were born abroad and automatically acquired or derived U.S. citizenship through birth to or adoption by a U.S. citizen parent or parents (whether U.S. citizens by birth or naturalization), while a Certificate of Naturalization is given to a lawful permanent resident after he or she fulfills the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

DD2345 Certification

Please Note: U.S. active duty military personnel and civilian employees of the United States are exempt from the following certification requirements.

The material to be presented and discussed at the Turbine Engine Technology Symposium will involve technical data that is governed by DoD Directive 5230.25, "Withholding of Unclassified Technical Data from Public Disclosure." Only individuals or enterprises certified under DoD Directive 5230.25 are eligible to obtain access to unclassified technical data with military or space applications in the possession of, or under the control of, the DoD.

Turbine Engine Technology Symposium attendees must determine if their employer already has a certification on file that extends to all employees. If an employer already has a certification on file, attendees are not required to recertify. However, you must return a copy of the approved company certification (DD Form 2345, "Military Critical Technical Data Agreement") along with the registration form.

If a certification is not on file, either the attendee or the employer must request certification by completing the attached DD Form 2345 (JUL 98) and submit the form to the U.S./Canada Joint Certification Office, Defense Logistics Services Center, Federal Center, 74 Washington Avenue, N, Battle Creek, MI 49017-3084. The attached DD Form 2345 may be duplicated. Specific instructions for completion and submission are on its reverse side. Processing time of the DD Form 2345 by the U.S./Canada Joint Certification Office is approximately two weeks. That office will notify each company's security officer by mail if the company's request for certification has been approved. Inquiries concerning application approval should be directed to the U.S./Canada Joint Certification Office at (800) 352-3572 or visit the website at www.dlis.dla.mil/jcp.
