Export Control Training Announcement - All researchers in high-risk disciplines (sciences, engineering, and biomedical) MUST receive export control compliance training annually. This training requirement can be met by:

  • Attending a department meeting with an export control training presentation
  • Requesting individual export control training
  • Completing the export controls module of the CITI program

OIC also recommends that all faculty and staff with frequent international contacts receive export control training to help understand the nuances of export controls, and how they can be triggered when least expected.

The FBI has developed the information below to help counter these losses:
