Export Control Compliance for University of Michigan Researchers

The Office of Research and Sponsored Projects Export Controls Officer supports University investigators and research administrators with questions about compliance with exported items and technology.

What are Export Controls?

Export Controls is the body of federal law intended to prevent the transfer of sensitive items and technology to foreign nations, organizations and individuals, in the interest of safeguarding national security. As the penalties for violating these laws can be severe, for both the offending party and the university, it is imperative that U-M be in full compliance.
