Revised Export Controls Classification Guidelines


Revised Export Controls Classification Guidelines

After ten months of collecting and analyzing data, the Office of Export Controls Services (OEC) and PantherExpress -  Purchasing Services have identified the schools and departments on campus that are the most at risk for receiving export-controlled items and for “deemed-export” related-technology.

In an effort to streamline the purchasing process, OEC and Purchasing Services have concluded that only a specific list of schools/departments must obtain anExport Controls Classificationfrom a supplier. The supplier may provide the Export Controls Classification information 1) on a quote, 2) on a separate document, 3) in the body of an email message or 4) on theUniversity’s Product Classification Certification form.

Effective immediately, ONLY the following schools/divisions will be asked to obtain an Export Controls Classification for goods having a single value greater than $5,000:

  • Natural Sciences Division* of the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences
  • Swanson School of Engineering
  • School of Information Sciences

For schools and departments not listed above, obtaining anExport Controls Classificationfor goods having a single value greater than $5,000 will be optional. However, if the recipient of the items knows that the items will be exported out of the U.S. now or in the future, the Office of Export Controls Services continues to recommend that the classification of the item be obtained from the supplier.

Note: University departments should follow the procedures implemented for shipment when an item is being sent by the University to a location outside of the U.S. For assistance, please contact the Office of Export Controls Services.
