There are many federal laws and regulations that governing the provision of certain services and the export of controlled items (e.g. material samples, equipment, software/source code and prototypes) and information. Normal university activities can constitute regulated services and items and information used in or produced by university activities can be subject to export controls. The Office of Export Controls is responsible for providing support for University activities subject to Federal export control and sanction regulations.

This is not a comprehensive list of all US export control regulations; additional laws and regulations exist, but typically university activities will not involve data, goods or services under their jurisdiction. Although OEC's primary focus is compliance with the EAR, ITAR, and FACR, we will support compliance with other export regulations.  In some cases that support may be to put you in touch with the individual in another office at UVA or the cognizant government agency that will be best able to assist.
