About OEC

The Office of Export Controls (OEC) is tasked with certain administrative processes that are primarily related to restricted research (i.e., export-controlled and/or classified research) and other related business activities of the University of Hawai‘i (UH).  OEC serves as the main resource for UH administrators, researchers, and other faculty and staff who are involved with research projects and business matters which require the review and execution of certain types of unfunded contractual agreements that may be subject to various U.S. laws and regulations.  OEC is responsible for assisting researchers in complying with complex and ever-changing U.S. laws and regulations which regulate certain strategic information, technology, and services, through training, providing advice and classification assistance, preparing and submitting license applications to Federal agencies, conducting assessments, and administering applicable UH policies and procedures.
