U.S. export control law regulates the export of and access to data, technologies, software, and hardware for reasons of foreign policy, national security, and trade protection. All UT Dallas employees are required to comply with export control regulations as they apply to instruction, research, and service at the University.

This site provides information, resources, and guidance for UTD faculty, staff, and students about the impact of export control regulations at the University. Although export control regulations cover a wide range of activities, the following are most pertinent to UT Dallas:

  • Accepting restrictions on publishing, proprietary information, or access to research results
  • Employing foreign nationals on research projects
  • Shipping or carrying certain data, software, or devices outside of the US
  • Traveling to embargoed countries

Questions about export control issues can be addressed with the Export Controls Officer in the Office of Research Integrity and Outreach.
