Questions

To understand whether or not you will be required to apply for an export license, you need to step through the Office of Sponsored Programs Export Controls Decision Tree process flow by responding either "Yes" or "No" to up to 15 questions on various relevant export topics.

To provide you with an idea on what export topics you will be expected to respond to, below you will find the "15" questions that are contained in this process each with a link to each individual question.
