Export Compliance at UNC-Chapel Hill

Export control regulations are a complex set of laws designed to control the transfer of information, technology, software, other items, and services considered to be important to the U.S. due to concerns regarding national security, economic competitiveness, or support of international treaties and foreign policy.

The Export Compliance Office at UNC-Chapel Hill supports the enterprise-wide efforts of University faculty, staff, and students in their teaching and research endeavors. We are dedicated to helping University personnel understand and adhere to the export control regulations, while facilitating the open sharing of research results, scholarship, and the University’s global mission.

The University’s leadership is committed to export compliance.
