Export Control

The export of certain items and information is regulated for reasons of national 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 (System) regulations, and agency rules and procedures.

Texas A&M University-Kingsville (TAMUK) 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).

Travelers should first complete the Export Control Screening Checklist, found on the Export Control webpage.  Email the completed Export Control Screening Checklist to exportcontrols@tamuk.edu and attach it to the Travel Request in Concur.  The Export Control Screening Checklist is a self-assessment of any Export Controlled items or information that you may be taking on your trip.  If you have any questions about this checklist or Export Control in general, contact the Compliance office.

TAMUK employees are individually responsible for identifying potential export–controlled items and information when preparing for a trip abroad. If a traveler indicates on the Export Control Screening Checklist that they will travel abroad with export–controlled items or information, TAMUK Compliance will work closely with the traveler and associated parties to determine the next plan of action to ensure compliance with export control laws, regulations, policies, and rules. Additionally, it is strongly recommended that travelers planning to take a trip abroad take the following TrainTraq Courses:  #2111212 - Export Controls, and #2111728 - International Travel.
