Export Controls

The export of certain items and information is regulated for reasons of nation security, foreign policy, prevention of the spread of weapons of mass destruction, and for competitive trade reasons, in accordance with United States laws and regulations, the Texas A&M University System regulations, and University rules and procedures.

Texas A&M University-San Antonio is committed to operating in compliance with the United States (U.S.) Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) Export Administration Regulations (EAR), the U.S. Department of State Directorate of Defense Trade Control (DDTC) International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), as well as those imposed by the U.S Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).

Individual Responsibility

Texas A&M University-San Antonio is committed to promoting a culture of compliance in regards to all U.S., System, and University export control laws, regulations, policies, procedures, and rules. All employees of Texas A&M University-San Antonio are ultimately individually responsible for ensuring compliance with U.S. export controls regulations, as well as System policies and regulations, and must conduct their affairs in accordance. While complying with all applicable regulations, policies, and rules, it is important to foster and maintain open research and educational environments welcoming the participation of researchers and visitors from around the world. It is also imperative that Texas A&M University-San Antonio employees recognize that export control regulations apply broadly—not just to sponsored research.
