The connection between export controls and scientific research is not initially obvious; however, universities and research institutions are subject to US export control laws. Specifically, deemed export designation triggers regulatory requirements, placing responsibility for compliance on the affected university and its researchers as exporters.
This educational white paper covers three key strategies all universities and research institutions must consider when creating, or enhancing, their export compliance program, as well as:
Information on deemed exports, controlled technology, & restricted party screening
Penalties for non-compliance, including fines and jail time
Technology considerations to automate the export compliance process
