Frequently Asked Questions

Export controls are federal laws and regulations that govern exports of certain commodities, technologies, services, and money to foreign countries. Export controls also regulate disclosures of certain kinds of information—including research data—to non-U.S. persons. Some exports and disclosures require special permissions (usually in the form of a license) from a federal agency. Please visit Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research's Export Control page for more information.

The International Safety and Security team evaluates international agreements together with the Global Relations team in Illinois International. Agreements between the Urbana campus and foreign partner institutions can range from non-binding letters of intent to formal, legally binding contracts that obligate one or both partners to perform specific actions or provide specific services to the other. Visit the International Agreements page on the Illinois International website to learn more about these types of agreements.
