Export Controls

Export Controls are a set of regulations derived from international treaties and Federal policies designed to limit military and sensitive technology transfer outside the U.S. while also furthering national foreign policy goals. Export Controls cover technology, items having both a military and commercial application, and emerging technology areas of concern, as well as country-specific and list-based sanctions covering financial transactions and services.

The Office of International Programs & Services provides resources and compliance services to help the Millersville University community understand and address export control risks. Export controls regulate the following:

  • On-campus research with foreign nationals
  • International travel
  • International shipping
  • Hosting foreign visitors
  • Procurement
  • Information technology
  • Working with restricted or sanctioned entities
