Export Controls

Welcome to the Office of Export Controls

The University of Cincinnati is committed to complying with all applicable export control regulations. The mission of the Export Controls office is to ensure compliance throughout the university by providing services to assist faculty, staff, and students with understanding and adhering to regulations, while facilitating research and international collaboration.

 U.S. Export Control System consists of federal laws and regulations that are set forth in the Arms Export Control Act, that regulate the transfer of commodities, technology, software, source code, information, and services out of the U.S. (Export) or to a foreign person within the U.S. (Deemed Export). The regulations are administered by the Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), the Department of State Directorate of Trade Controls under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), the U.S. Department of the Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and the Department of Energy (DOE).
