As a reminder, in compliance with federal Export Control Regulations, FIU has a mandatory online international shipping request and review process.  All international shipments require an export control attestation by the shipper and/or review by FIU’s Office of Export Controls.  Current U. S. Government Export Control regulations require that certain international shipments be institutionally reviewed to determine federal export authorization (license) requirements.  Where required, the failure to obtain such authorization from the appropriate Government agency may result in significant civil fines and/or criminal prosecution at the individual and/or institutional level, as well as suspension of export privileges. 

To ensure that your international shipments comply with these regulations and reach their intended destination without additional cost and/or delay, FIU has the following procedures in place for the processing of international shipments. 

  1. ALL international shipments/mail require an export control attestation and/or review.
  2. If you are shipping through university Mail Services, export review questions are integrated into the Voucher form.
  3.  If you are shipping directly through a carrier (i.e., UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc.) please complete an Export Control – International Shipping Attestation
  4. Approval may be required from our Office of Export Controls prior to shipment of certain items to specific destinations.  Refer to instructions within the International Shipping Attestation for requirements for potential additional required reviews.

Complete information may be found on the FIU Export Controls website (“Ship Something Abroad”) or you can contact our Office of Export Controls at Our Export Controls team will promptly partner with you as needed to answer questions and support your shipment(s) so that they are processed as expeditiously as possible.
