Export Controls (EC)

CubaExport control regulations were established to protect U.S. national security and foreign policy interests.  These regulations govern the export of all items of U.S. origin as well as information and/or software that may be shared with foreign nationals in the U.S. or abroad.  Please review our Policy, best practices for academics traveling overseas (published by the FBI), and this website for more information about export controls.
