Click HERE for an introduction to export controls. This is a 27 minute overview of the basic regulations and uses case studies to illustrate how export controls can impact University activities. While this training program provides a good foundation to understanding export controls, it does not fulfill the training requirement for personnel on a Technology Control Plan (TCP) which address project specific issues, protocols, and requirements. Please contact the Office of Export Controls at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone (see Contacts page) with specific questions or to arrange a customized training event for people in your area.
