Export Controls

You may be affected by export controls if:

  • You teach courses
  • You perform research on campus or elsewhere
  • You plan to travel outside the United States.
  • You need to ship items, software or information internationally 

Administrative functions need to assure that we’re not violating a sanction or embargo when we make payments for purchased items, services, or reimburse expenses.  

There are also pages for export controls basic concepts, advanced topics, examples, and resources including training.

MIT's policy is to fully comply with all U.S. export control laws and regulations. The export control compliance program described here is designed to fit MIT's mission and policies.
