CITI training program for Export Control
CITI is a web-based research education program. In addition to training for submitting an application to the IRB, IACUC or IBC committee, there are also training courses for Export Controls and Responsible Conduct of Research.
Individuals seeking training in Export Control Regulations as they relate to University research may access the US Export Control Regulation web-based program on the CITI website. The course contains modules providing a basic overview of export controls. Also provided is information specific to the various federal agencies that oversee export controls including the State Department’s International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), the Commerce Department’s Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
The Export Control CITI Training Modules can be used to fulfill the export control training requirement for University staff, students and/or employees that may be required by certain Colleges or Departments.
Visual Compliance Training Modules
Visual Compliance is the resource currently utilized to screen international visitors to campus. Contact the University ECO as far in advance as possible for any international visitors. Additional information can be found here.
In addition to the training materials provided by the university, there are a number of external resources available to you that can provide additional information regarding export controls:
- The U.S. Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) has created on-line training modules covering export controls, deemed exports, performing export control classifications, license exceptions, and anti-boycott regulations. The training modules are broken up into short video segments that provide general information on the essentials of export control in a very accessible and user-friendly format. The on-line training can be found at BIS On-line Training Room.

- In 2004, the Council on Government Relations (COGR) created the brochure “Export Controls and Universities: Information and Case Studies.” The brochure provides general information regarding export controls and their impact on academic research. Included in the brochure are a number of case studies that represent potential situations encountered by universities.
