What are export controls?

Export controls are federal laws that govern the transmission of controlled items and associated technical data to foreign nationals. There are also federal regulations regarding providing services, traveling to, or working with individuals or entities from sanctioned or embargoed countries. These federal regulations not only affect items that are utilized by UA personnel, but can also affect whom the UA engages with on campus as well as around the world.

There are three primary agencies which govern export control laws and regulations: the U.S. Department of State Directorate of Defense Trade Controls; the U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security; and the U.S. Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control.
