Export Controls

The United States is committed to encourage technology exchanges that are consistent with U.S. national security and nuclear nonproliferation objectives. Although most of the research and technology development WSSU conducts is exempt from U.S. export control regulations, we must still comply with the regulations.

An export can occur though a variety of means, including: shipping, oral communications, written documentation (including e-mails), and visual inspections of any technology, software or technical data to any non-U.S. citizen, whether here in the U.S. or abroad.

How do these regulations affect you as a faculty or staff member at Winston-Salem State University? Export controls affect three main areas at WSSU: research, travel outside the U.S., and shipping.
