Export Compliance

Export Compliance
UMD has a mission of promoting academic freedom and sharing of information to the greatest extent possible. However, in some cases, UMD researchers may create or have access to sensitive technologies that are controlled by US export laws. Researchers and administrators dealing in sensitive technologies need to be mindful of the legal restrictions including the significant personal liability associated with handling sensitive technologies. It is the primary goal of the Export Compliance Office (ECO) to protect our researchers and support research advancement by providing the least burdensome approach to complying with US export laws.
