Export Controls

Export Controls
- Regulations & Resources -

    Export controls may impose access, dissemination, and participation restrictions on information and tangible items; "exports" can include both the shipment of materials to another country AND/OR the disclosure of controlled information to foreign nationals who are here. Export controls may be promulgated by several federal agencies, including the US State Department, Commerce Department and Treasury Department (See " Regulations").

    The conduct, products, and results of FUNDAMENTAL RESEARCH are generally EXCLUDED from federal "deemed export" controls - i.e., disclosure of information to foreign nationals on U.S. soil - in accordance with National Security Decision Directive 189 (AAU site).

    The University of Vermont (UVM) relies on proper documentation in order to make use of exclusions and exemptions from licensing requirements. Recordkeeping is important if you are involved in research efforts where it may be necessary to:

    1. ship research articles outside the U.S. or
    2. share export-controlled information provided by third parties, such as vendors, subcontractors, or government collaborators; or
    3. travel outside the United States for research or academic purposes.
