Export Controls > Shipping


Shipping to destinations outside the U.S., whether it is leaving the U.S. temporarily or being used in research, is considered an export and therefore subject to export control regulations.

Restrictions on items leaving US:

Depending on the shipment, who will receive it & in what country, and how they will use it, your shipment may require a license from the Commerce Department (EAR), the State Department (ITAR), or the Treasury Department (OFAC). Things to take into consideration before exporting any item:

  • Determine the export classification
  • Determine whether a license is required
  • Check the receiving individuals and entities
