- Check the ITAR Munitions List and the EAR Commerce Control List to determine whether an item is controlled and therefore requires an export license.
- Complete the International Shipping Review form and return it to the Office of General Counsel (OGC) Export Team for review and approval.
- Visit Georgia Tech's Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) website to determine if a MTA is needed, and to initiate an agreement if needed.
When an international shipment is approved for export, you will be notified about the requirement for Electronic Export Information (EEI) filing. This is necessary if an export license is required or if the export value exceeds $2,500. Always provide a copy of the EEI filing to the Office of General Counsel (OGC) Export Team. FedEx Trade Networks can assist with EEI filing. Our primary contact there is Patrick Moran (404.684.2233).
All chemical, biological, and dangerous goods shipments must be shipped via the
Office of Environment Health & Safety.
Contact the Office of General Counsel (OGC) Export Team for all imports.
Also, contact the appropriate Georgia Tech compliance office if an import involves research with:
- Human subjects
- Recombinant DNA (rDNA) and synthetic nucleic acid molecules
- Vertebrate animals
