Ensuring that the research and work done while on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus is in accordance with U.S. export controls is essential to the University’s mission to serve as a center for research, scholarship and creativity, as well as to teach a diverse community of undergraduate, graduate, and professional students to become the next generation of leaders.

For this reason, UNC-Chapel Hill encourages international involvement in its research and University-related activities across campus. When conducting research, U.S. export controls can apply to what is known as a “deemed export.” The “release” of export-controlled technology to any international person located in the U.S. is deemed an export to the person’s country or countries of citizenship. For more information on deemed exports, please refer to the U.S. Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) resource on deemed exports.

If you are hosting anyone from a comprehensively sanctioned country or a restricted party, please contact the Export Compliance Office.
