Export Licenses

While Princeton’s Export Controls Policy emphasizes the need for open access to research results and the preservation of the Fundamental Research Exclusion, an export license may sometimes be required. For example, licenses may be required when controlled equipment or technology is being shipped overseas.

It is imperative that you recognize when you are dealing with potentially export controlled equipment or technology. Export Controls will help you determine whether a license is needed for shipment and whether the University will consider applying for one in accordance with its policies.
