What is the Export Control Decision Tree?

United States export controls exist to protect the national security, economic and foreign policy interests of this country. Export controls govern the shipment, transmission, or transfer of certain sensitive items, information and software to foreign persons or entities. Where applicable, they may require authorization from the US Government in the form of an export license. Most of the items, information or software that UCI ships or shares with its colleagues and research partners is not of a nature that would be restricted for these purposes, nor are they destined for countries or individuals subject to US embargoes or sanctions. UCI however is required to exercise due diligence, and this Decision Tree has been crafted for the purpose of complying with US trade law while preserving one of UC's fundamental policies, Openness in Research.
