Export Control Documents and Form

The term “export controls” typically refers to regulations regarding shipping or taking items out of the United States overseen by several federal agencies, such as the Departments of State, Commerce, and Treasury. These agencies implement laws to protect national security, promote foreign policy, enforce imposed sanctions on foreign entities, and in some cases to control short supplies. The regulations govern the international transfer of military and most commercial items, including but not limited to: hardware, software, technical information, and certain services. In addition to the transfer of items out of the United States, the term “export” also refers to the release of controlled software source code or technical information to a foreign national, whether in the U.S. or abroad.

Export control regulations are intricate and involved. Penalties and fines imposed for export control violations can be severe and include criminal, civil and administrative charges.
