Export Control Review Form for International Shipments
All physical items, equipment, materials, commodities (including food and medicines), software and biologics (collectively “things”) are subject to export control regulations and require some form of shipping documentation prior to shipping abroad. It is important to understand that everything that crosses the border is an export, even if the item is abroad only temporarily, or if it will be used for research. In accordance with the UNC-Chapel Hill Policy on Export Controls, the following International Shipment Review Form should be submitted for review 30 days prior to the date of shipment and receive approval from the Export Compliance Office prior to leaving the country. For more information on UNC-Chapel Hill processes for shipping and receiving, please refer to the University Shipping Guidance Document.

The Schedule B Look-up tool can be used to help you find the appropriate code. For certain commercial items, the vendor/manufacturer may be able to provide this code (e.g. Microsoft Schedule B Lookup)
