Export Compliance and Research Security

U.S. Export controls comprise a complex and dynamic set of U.S. trade regulations aimed at safeguarding U.S. national security and furthering U.S. foreign policy and economic objectives. This is accomplished by managing exports of controlled articles and information in order to limit access by some foreign persons and sanctioned parties.
