Export Controls are federal statutes and regulations that govern how certain information, technologies, and commodities can be transmitted overseas to anyone, including U.S. citizens, or to a foreign national here in the U.S. The U.S. Export Control system, which has existed in various forms since the late 1940s, seeks to protect national security and maintain the economic competitiveness of the U.S.
It is important for UNT faculty members and staff employees to understand their obligations under the Export Control laws. Failure to comply with these laws can result in severe consequences for UNT as well as for individual researchers, including fines and imprisonment. This website is designed to assist faculty and staff in understanding Export Control laws and provide guidance as to what steps should be taken to ensure compliance. Please review these materials and contact Research Integrity & Compliance if you have any questions or if you wish to schedule training for your department.
