The University of Arkansas at Little Rock will hold a talk on export controls from the FBI perspective.

The event, “Export Controls: An FBI Perspective,” will be held from 1-2 p.m. on Wednesday. Nov. 11. Space is limited to the first 100 participants. Participants may join the meeting via Zoom at this link.

FBI Special Agent Laura Garrett will talk about the basics of export controls and how these regulations affect the campus community.

The U.S. government regulates exports of sensitive equipment, software, and technology to protect and promote our national security interests and foreign policy objectives.

“Faculty, staff, and students are required to follow these institutional policies when working in or traveling to a foreign country, as well as when they use or carry university equipment, intellectual property, or any other property regulated under the applicable controls in a foreign country,” said Angela Willis, export compliance professional at UA Little Rock. “Depending on the type of export and who will receive the export, an export control license may be required. The export control officer encourages questions regarding export controls.”

The event is hosted by the UA Little Rock Office of Research Compliance. For more information Willis at
