Export Controls Manual - prepared by the Chancellors Office

Certain types of equipment, software and technology are regulated by the U.S. government and this may impact the university and its employees’ ability to host international visitors, participate in international conferences, and conduct research in a completely open environment. While the CSU remains dedicated to academic freedom and openness in research, it must comply with the various laws and regulations known as export controls. Non-compliance with export controls may subject the university and individuals involved to civil and criminal penalties.
