Ubiquiti Export Control Compliance



As a UK Distributor for Ubiquiti we are making our partners aware of your mandatory compliance with the U.S. export control and trade and economic sanctions regulations.

Compliance with the U.S. export control and trade and economic sanctions regulations

Ubiquiti Inc. is committed to conducting its business with honesty and integrity, and in full compliance with the U.S. export control and trade and economic sanctions regulations. Compliance with these laws is critical to Ubiquiti’s reputation and success.

The U.S. Government administers and enforces certain laws and regulations that cover the sale and shipment of Ubiquiti products to foreign countries. The key laws and regulations are:


  • The Export Administration Regulations, administered by the Bureau of Industry and Security (the “BIS”), apply to the sale, shipment and transfer of Ubiquiti goods and technology to foreign companies and foreign persons located both in the United States and abroad.
  • The trade and economic sanctions regulations, administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control, restrict trade, investment, and financial transactions with certain countries, organizations, and individuals.

Restrictions on Certain Countries

Under these regulations, Ubiquiti products cannot be sold, shipped, or otherwise transferred into any destination that is subject to a U.S. government embargo and/or anti-terrorism controls, currently Cuba, Iran, North Korea and Syria, and the Crimea region of Ukraine. Ubiquiti products cannot be sold, shipped or otherwise transferred, directly by Ubiquiti or by distributors or resellers to one of these restricted destinations. Failure to comply with U.S. export control and trade and economic sanctions laws and regulations can result in criminal sanctions, civil fines, debarment from government contracting, the loss of U.S. export privileges, and imprisonment. The reach of these laws and regulations covers U.S. persons as well as foreign persons, wherever located.

Illegal payments to government officials of any country are strictly prohibited.


Finally, no Ubiquiti products can be exported or sold to any prohibited individuals or entities listed on the relevant U.S. lists of prohibited parties, including but not limited to U.S. Treasury Department’s lists of Specially Designated Nationals and the BIS’s Denied Persons List, Entity List, or Unverified List.
