Shipping/Carrying Materials Overseas:
- Any item that is sent from the United States to a foreign destination is an export. “Items” include biological materials, chemicals, research equipment, software, technology, and information.
- The export of controlled items, information or software may require approval from the U.S. government in the form of an export license.
