Export Controls

What are export controls?  Export controls are U.S. laws that regulate the distribution to foreign nationals and foreign countries of strategically important technology, services and information for reasons of foreign policy and national security.  Since some grant activities include exports, the Office of Research & Sponsored Projects provides you with links to relevant information about export controls and how they affect academic research.

If you have questions about Export Controls, please contact the TAMIU Empowered Official, Dr. John Kilburn , KL326, 956-326-3221.
