Export Controls
- Controlled or Embargoed Countries, Entities, and Persons -


In considering whether or not a shipment, transfer, transmission or disclosure will require an export license, we need to consider WHAT is being shipped, WHERE it is going, and TO WHOM it is being exported or disclosed.

The lists on this page deal with WHERE and TO WHOM items, information or software is going. (See the lists of controlled technologies for guidance about WHAT may be sent.)

Certain destinations, organizations and individuals are subject to trade sanctions, embargoes and restrictions under U.S. law.

If you intend to ship to a country, entity or person that appears on a restricted list, contact Jennifer Gagnon, Associate Vice President for Research Administration at Jennifer.Gagnon@uvm.edu.
