Export Control

Please note export control laws are federal. U.S. government regulations for export control apply to the transfers of certain items, information and software to:


(a) any entity outside the United States; or

(b) foreign nationals anywhere, including inside the United States


These regulations are the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), as well as the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).


For more export control information please visit and for help in determining how export controls affect your specific research activities from Ithaca-based campuses see the EAR and ITAR decision trees.
