- Lists of Controlled Technologies -

In considering whether or not a shipment to another country will require an export license, we need to consider both WHAT is being shipped and WHERE it is going.

The lists on this page deal with WHAT is being shipped. (See the lists of export-controlled or embargoed countries for guidance about WHERE shipments may be sent.)

Technologies subject to Export Control Laws are categorized on the following two lists:

In addition, under the provisions of the international Chemical Weapons Convention, the United States may require special declarations related to chemical shipments under either the ITAR or the EAR. Additionally, U. S. Department of State Regulations cover the taking of samples, recordkeeping, and inspections.

If you are shipping an item that you believe falls into a controlled category, use the links below to go to the regulations themselves for further description of categories, or contact Victoria Jones, Research Integrity Compliance Officer or Brian Prindle,  Executive Director, Research Administration.
