AbstractExport controls enforcement activities on American university campuses have increased exponentially since 9/11. This session will present a primer on export controls, exploring the regulatory basis for Export Administration Regulations (EAR), International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and sanctions under the Office of Foreign Assets Controls (OFAC) — specifically, the ramifications for academic research as a “deemed export.” You’ll get an insightful look at how these complex regulations impact the university and research community, the Fundamental Research Exclusion (FRE), the role researchers play in compliance, and how to remain within the regulatory exclusions and exceptions.

5 Key Take-Aways:

  • Identify commonly occurring issues that could pose export controls compliance concerns
  • Understand how the FRE exempts research from required export controls licensing and documentation
  • Articulate the researcher’s role in ensuring export controls compliance
  • Understand the concept of “deemed exports”
  • Gain awareness of good practices for complying with U.S export controls laws when working or traveling abroad

Lunch will be served to registrants.
