About the Export Controls Compliance Program

The Export Controls Compliance Program at K-State is designed to support K-State employees, students, and departmental units to comply with the export controls laws and regulations of the U.S. Federal Government. They include the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) administered by the Department of State, the Export Administration Regulation (EAR) administered by the Department of Commerce, and economic and trade sanctions implemented through the Office of Foreign Assets Controls (OFAC) of the Treasury Department.

In general, export control laws and regulations govern how items, technology, and data may be exported from the United States or released to foreign persons in the U.S. Noncompliance with export controls regulations carries severe individual and institutional penalties including criminal and civil liability, loss of research funding, and loss of export privileges.

Export controls regulations can affect several research, academic, and, business activities, including but not limited to, conducting research, hosting international visitors, international collaborations, international travel, hiring, procurement and purchasing, international shipments, and other financial related transactions. All K-State faculty, staff, and students must be aware of how export controls relate to their work.
