When traveling internationally on Indiana University business, export control restrictions may apply depending on:
- Where you are going (is it a sanctioned or embargoed country or region?)
- What you take with you (including scientific equipment, laptops, encryption software, cell phones, tablets, flash drives, cameras, GPS units, and controlled or proprietary research data)
- What you will be doing and with whom you will be interacting (restricted parties and entities with whom IU is prohibited by federal law from doing business)
IU's Export Control Specialist in the Office for Research Compliance can help you determine if export restrictions or controls apply to your travel and if an export license or other government approval is required before you depart.
