ISU Export Control Compliance Policy

December 14, 2023

Export controls are laws and regulations that restrict the release of certain materials, information, and services to foreign persons abroad and within the United States. The U.S. imposes export controls to protect national security interests and to promote foreign policy objectives. ISU recognizes the importance of complying with all U.S. export control regulations and is committed to full compliance with these regulations.

University activities involving foreign entities (persons, organizations, or countries) may be regulated by export controls. Activities that may be regulated, depending on the specific situation, include the following:

• Shipping material to a foreign country
• Sharing export-controlled information with a foreign person
• Performing a service for a sanctioned foreign entity
• Collaborating with foreign persons in a manner that violates export controls
• Traveling internationally to a sanctioned country
• Traveling internationally with export-controlled material or information
• Arranging for a foreign person to work within the U.S.
• Entering into a business agreement with a foreign entity

Detailed ISU export control information may be found in the ISU Export Controls and Working with Foreign Nationals Policy (ISUPP 7040) and the ISU Export Control Manual.

Regulations governing export control are complex and penalties for non-compliance can be significant. ISU has established an Export Control Office to assist faculty and staff with export control related issues. The ISU Export Control Office may be contacted at (208) 282-2618 or orexpctr@isu.edu.

Faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to collaborate with the Export Control Office early in the planning stage of any activities involving foreign entities to ensure compliance with U.S. export controls and ISU export control policy.
