Export Control Regulations and Resources »

The Texas A&M University System, its members, employees and students must comply with all United States export control regulations.  Export control regulations are federal laws that restrict the unlicensed shipment, transmission or transfer of certain items, information or technology from the United States to a foreign country for reasons of national security, foreign policy or trade protection.  Export control regulations also prohibit “deemed exports,” or the unlicensed release or disclosure of controlled items, information or technology to foreign nationals in the United States.

 Export control regulations usually arise in one of the following circumstances:

  • The nature of the export has actual or potential military applications or economic protection issues;
  • Concerns regarding the destination country, organization, or individual; or
  • Concerns regarding the intended or suspected end use or the end user of the export.

Although many system member activities may be excluded from export control regulations, certain activities are restricted or may require a license.  The application of export control regulations involves a fact-specific analysis.
