Controlled Agent List

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not ship any of these agents listed below internationally without prior approval from the Office of Export Controls.

US Department of CommerceThe Office of Export Controls has summarized a list of select agents that researchers and staff at OHSU may use on a regular basis that could be subject to US Export Controls.  Additionally this page provides direct access to the database of controlled equipment, material, and technology.  The Office of Export Controls is available at any time to assist you in determining if you are dealing with Export Controlled subject matter. 

For a complete list of Commerce controlled items please visit the
Commerce Control List from the US Department of Commerce. For items that are controlled because of a potential military application, please also refer to the
US Department of State International Trafficking and Arms Regulations - Part  121

The select agents most likely to be used at OHSU are listed under category XIV.

The summaries of materials most likely to be encountered at OHSU are fall within the two export regime below;
