Export Controls: GW Policy

Policy Statement
It is the policy of the university to comply with U.S. export control laws. Export control laws restrict certain types of information, technologies, and commodities that can be transmitted overseas to individuals, including U.S. citizens, or made available to foreign nationals on U.S. soil.

It is the responsibility of faculty staff and students to be aware of and comply with these laws and the university's written instructions and procedures.
