Export control regulations are federal laws that 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 protection 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

Most activity at Oregon State University will be exempt from needing a license, however, it is important to know if or how work, travel, shipping, or collaboration may be impacted by export controls. For more information, please visit our new Office of Export Controls.
