Export Controls

Policy number: 
13.010
Policy description: 

The University of North Texas is committed to conducting research in accordance with applicable export control laws and regulations.   Export control laws are federal statutes that control the conditions under which certain information, technologies, and commodities can be transmitted overseas to anyone, including U.S. citizens, or to a foreign national located in the United States. These statutes are implemented by the U.S. Department of Commerce through its Export Administration Regulations (EAR), by the U.S. Department of State through its International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and by the U.S. Treasury Department through its Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).  The export control laws and regulations have several purposes: to restrict exports of goods and technology that could contribute to the military potential of U.S. international adversaries; to help prevent proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and terrorism; to advance U.S. foreign policy goals; and to protect the U.S. economy.
