Export Control Review Request

Export Control Review Request

Export Control laws are U.S. laws and regulations that govern the export of strategically important technology, services and information to foreign entities. This checklist provides a diagnostic tool to determine the need for additional review and further action for UMMS initiated foreign activities (non-sponsored research).

If any of the answers in are "Yes" - consultation with the appropriate UMMS Responsible Policy Administrator is required and a license from the Department of State or Department of Commerce may be necessary. Responsibility for export compliance rests with the exporter. Administrative and criminal penalties exist for violations of U.S. export law.
