Export Controlled or Embargoed Countries


To protect yourself, your research lab, and the university, be aware that there are restrictions on U.S. institutions in exporting certain technologies to particular countries or to denied parties. We must consider destinations, nationalities, and screen for restricted parties before traveling to, hiring from, entering into agreements with, shipping, mailing or emailing to, discussing restricted technology with someone from, or procuring from these countries or entities. We anticipate that any exports to the countries below or deemed exports to non-U.S. persons from these countries in the U.S. may require securing an export control license before the transfer can occur.

Restricted Entities

In addition to export controls related to the countries above, certain institutions, organizations, and individuals are included on various Denied Parties or Entity Lists. Federal laws and regulations require CSU to screen for these restricted entities, and to avoid entering into business relationships with them unless we first secure an export license. Contact the CSU Export Control Administrator for help with screening or requesting a license.

*This country is also restricted at a higher level. See the top section, above.
Note: These lists are summarized from International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Export Administration Regulations
(EAR), and the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) requirements.
