The South Dakota Board of Regents and the institutions under its control and management encourage the exchange of research and technology consistent with United States national security and nonproliferation objectives. Export control laws and regulations are in place to protect not only the economic vitality of the United States, but also to thwart international criminal activity and to protect national security. United States (U.S.) export control regulations impact a wide range of university functions, including human resources, student affairs, international affairs, purchasing and procurement, international travel, information technologies, technology transfer, and research. While most of the activities occurring at the governed institutions are exempt from U.S. export control regulations, the Board recognizes the importance of these regulations and is committed to full compliance.
The System Export Control Office is committed to providing the information, training and expertise necessary to ensure compliance with U.S. export control regulations.
