Exports are often thought of in terms of shipping items to places outside the US, but did you know that export control regulations can apply for activities and items that never leave the US?
Export control is a series of federal regulations that determine how, where, and with whom knowledge, services, technology, and physical items can be shared. Adherence to export control regulations is critical, and the consequences for noncompliance include substantial fines of up to $1 million per violation for the university or up to $250,000 and a prison sentence per violation for an individual.
The University of Tennessee is committed to upholding this regulatory requirement and has export control officers at all campuses for assistance. Please see the Statement of Commitment letter for more details and the contact information for the export control officers at your location.
