To help protect faculty, staff, trainees, and students from inadvertent violation of federal export laws, the Office of Export Controls has developed the following process for international shipping.
Please note: This process has two parts -
1) Filling out the authorization form
2) Receiving the authorization from the Office of Export Controls.
Please plan ahead for the time it takes for authorization, which you will need before you ship any materials internationally.
If you have any questions about this form, please contact the OHSU Export Officer.
Please make sure to review the Controlled Agents List
International Shipping Exemption Definitions
- Any documentation that moves forward the operations of OHSU that does not include any technical information. Examples: contracts, visa paperwork, acceptance letters. Also, lab images on any print or electronic media.
Human & Animal Cell lines & Tissue
- without known pathogens and/or elements from the controlled agents list.
- Any written material of a technical nature that has already been published and meets the definition in CFR 734.7
- Any shipment and recipient who has been approved through the process is approved for that calendar year as long as the material and recipient remains the same.
1. Please be sure that the person who packages and fills out shipping information is in compliance and certified, if needed, under the hazardous materials shipping program.
2. International shipments are complicated, be sure the recipient is aware there will likely be requirements to import materials into their country
