Export Controls are a group of federal laws & regulations that control products, services, and information for reasons of foreign policy and national security. PVI is committed to complying with U.S. laws and regulations and requires its customers to do the same regarding selling, exporting or re-exporting PVI software and technical information.
The US Export Administration Regulations (EAR) regulate the export and re-export of our software and technical information to foreign countries or to foreign nationals in the US.
