Export Control Management

Export control regulations are group of federal regulations designed to advance the national security, foreign policy, and economic interests of the United States.  Exports generally cover four main areas:1) shipment of controlled physical items, such as scientific equipment or a biological material, that require export licenses from the United States to a foreign country; 2) procurement of controlled  items, data or services that are subject (fall within the federal regulations) to subject to the Export Administration Regulations or the International Traffic in Arms Regulations; 3) verbal, written, electronic, or visual disclosures or transfer of controlled scientific and technical information (including technical data) related to export controlled items to foreign persons (everyone other than a U.S. citizen, a permanent resident alien, and certain ‘protected individuals’ (refugees and those with asylum), including any company not incorporated in the United States); and, 4) travel to certain sanctioned or embargoed countries for purposes of teaching or performing research.
