Countries establish export controls based upon their own foreign policy and national security concerns. Laws and regulations require federal agency approval prior to the export of controlled items, commodities, technology, software or information to restricted foreign countries, persons and entities (including universities). The technology industry is particularly affected by export controls because of the nature of our products. Non-compliance with export laws and regulations can result in fines, penalties and loss of export privileges.
CompTIA educates and keeps members current on U.S. export regulations for dual-use goods and technology and munitions items, as well as works with the U.S. Congress and the Administration as necessary to make U.S. export controls streamlined, effective, and transparent for both government and industry.
