Export control laws are federal regulations that govern how certain information, technologies, and commodities can be transmitted overseas to anyone — including U.S. citizens — or to foreign nationals on U.S. soil.
The University of Tennessee is committed to the highest level of compliance with all applicable export control laws and regulations. Penalties for non-compliance with export control laws are severe and impact both the institution and the researcher.
This website is designed to help the university research community understand the impact of these critical compliance responsibilities by providing essential export control information and relating how it applies to the university campus.
