Export Control

Export control laws are federal regulations that control the conditions under which certain information, technologies, and commodities can be transmitted or shipped overseas to anyone (including U.S. citizens) or disclosed, released, or transferred to a foreign national on U.S. soil. Exports can be done by:

  • Personal transport
  • Mail
  • Shipping
  • Transmitting technical data or software

The University of California’s strategy for compliance with federal export controls is based upon maintaining an open research environment, such that scientific data and results qualify as being in the public domain under International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and are not subject to Export Administration Regulations (EAR) under the provisions related to publicly available technology, published information and software, information resulting from fundamental research, and educational information.

For more information, consult Contract and Grant Officer Carlos Molina in the Office of Contracts and Grants Administration. Carlos can be reached by email at: cmolina@ucsd.edu, and by phone at: (858)-534-0247.
