Export Controls Regulations

According to the Council on Governmental Relations (COGR) "the export control laws and regulations have several purposes: to restrict exports of goods and technology that could contribute to the military potential of US international adversaries; to prevent proliferation of weapons of mass destruction; to advance US foreign policy goals; and to protect the US economy and promote trade goals." The Department of Commerce defines an export
as "Any item that is sent from the United States to a foreign destination is an export. "Items" include commodities, software or technology, such as clothing, building materials, circuit boards, automotive parts, blue prints, design plans, retail software packages and technical information." This definition can impact research
conducted by universities. An exemption has been made for "fundamental research." Any work meeting conditions set out by Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR are not considered fundamental research will require a license from the
federal government.

Regulations Apply to :

• the transfer, or “export” of specified items or information to people or entities outside the United States;
• the disclosure of certain information to certain foreign nationals inside the United States (often called a “deemed export”);

• the training or offering of services involving controlled equipment or information to foreign nationals; and
• transactions with, or providing services to, certain foreign countries or individuals who are on the denied entities/persons lists.
