Export control laws are federal regulations that govern how certain information, technologies, and commodities can be transmitted overseas to anyone (including U.S. citizens), or to foreign nationals on U.S. soil.  TTUHSC and its employees are required to comply with applicable export control laws and regulations. 

This site will provide information about export control regulations and how they affect research at TTUHSC - such as international travel, foreign nationals on research projects, and shipping or taking items (laptops and software) outside the U.S.

Export control regulations prohibit the unlicensed export of certain commodities or information for reasons of national security or protections of trade.  Export controls usually arise for one or more of the following reasons:

  • The nature of the export has actual or potential military applications or economic projection issues;
  • Government concerns about the destination country, organization, or individual, and
  • Government concerns about the declared or suspected end use or the end user of the export
