Memo from Provost Regarding Travel to Iran


University of Arizona employees working on an export controlled project with a Technology Control Plan (TCP) must complete the initial export control training module prior to working on a project and/or accessing export controlled information. Agreements will not be processed by Contracting Services until training is confirmed as current and the TCP is in place. 

Refresher training is required every two years as long as an individual is on the TCP.  Failure to complete required trainings can result in removal from the TCP and access to export-controlled data and/or project.

Principal Investigators conducting research secured with a TCP are responsible for ensuring that all project personnel complete the required export control training.

Please contact the University Export Control Program for additional information or questions regarding export control training requirements.
