1. Export Controls on Individual Eligibility as a Recipient

Generally, federal regulations require that only US persons as defined in RPH: Definitions may be provided with export-controlled items, software code or information without having to obtain an export license. Nonetheless, there are some specific exemptions (ITAR) and license exceptions (EAR) available to those within the University community that may be useful. It is extremely important to keep them in mind should it become necessary to share any export-controlled items, software code or information beyond the original recipient.

In addition, records must be kept in order to demonstrate compliance.
