Export Controls Program

Export Compliance Training

Online training is required for faculty who are subject to export control laws. Understanding three basic concepts related to export controls is essential:

  1. the nature of the technology that is export controlled and how it is recognized;
  2. the fundamental research exclusion; and
  3. what is a deemed export.

Online training is offered through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program.

Compliance training must be updated every three years. Check CITI training due dates through your CITI account, or verify pre-CITI training by calling or emailing our office. Pre-CITI training is honored until expiration.
