Export Control Training


All UA employees working on an export controlled project secured with a Technology Control Plan (TCP) are required to successfully complete the online export control training module prior to the start of the project and to take export control continuing education training each year throughout the duration of the secured project (see links to training below). Failure to successfully complete the required initial and annual continuing education training will result in removal from the project until the training has been completed. Principal Investigators conducting research secured with a TCP are responsible for ensuring that all project personnel complete the required export control training.

If the UA Export Control Program determines that a project is export controlled and requires a TCP, the Contract & Research Support Program (CRSP) will not process the pertinent sponsored research agreement, contract, or non-disclosure/proprietary information agreement until receiving confirmation that all project personnel have successfully completed the export control training requirements. In addition, no work on the project can begin until all project personnel have successfully completed the export control training and the TCP is implemented.

Please contact the University Export Control Program staff at (export@email.arizona.edu) for additional information or questions regarding export control training requirements. 

Note: The University’s Export Control Program is responsible for export control training content and for maintaining the training records.
