Three federal departments enforce the export control regulations: the Department of Commerce through the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), which govern the export of dual use items and their technology (i.e., items that have both commercial and military applications, such as computers or pathogens); the Department of State through the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), which apply to munitions, or defense articles and services; and the Treasury Department through its Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), which oversees trade sanctions, embargoes and travel restrictions. A license must be obtained from the relevant agency prior to the export of any covered equipment, materials, technology, software, or information.
