Export controls are federal regulations that restrict access to and the flow of certain materials, devices, data, and technical information to entities outside the U.S. and to foreign nationals inside the U.S.
Export control issues may also affect international travel. MIT complies fully with all U.S. export control laws and regulations—noncompliance can have serious consequences on an individual and institutional level.
The ICC can help you:
- Stay in compliance. Helpful information on export controls and how to comply with them is available on OSP’s website. Different regulations will apply depending on the technology and the destination.
- Review your project. Any project with international components should be reviewed by MIT’s Export Control Officer. We will initiate this process for every proposal where the Principal Investigator indicates information or materials will be shipped abroad.
If you have questions or would like to request a review, please contact Janet Johnston, Export Control Officer.
