(a) In General.—
(1) The Secretary of Defense shall, if required to release technical data under section 552 of title 5 (relating to the Freedom of Information Act), release such technical data to the person requesting the release if the person pays all reasonable costs attributable to search, duplication, and review.

(c) Waiver.— The Secretary of Defense shall waive the payment of costs required by subsection (a) which are in an amount greater than the costs that would be required for such a release of information under section 552 of title 5 if—

(2) the release of technical data is requested in order to comply with the terms of an international agreement; or
(3) the Secretary determines, in accordance with section 552 (a)(4)(A)(iii) of title 5, that such a waiver is in the interests of the United States.
