For projects where protocols will involve actions or items that fall under federally-mandated export control laws and regulations, the Principal Investigator (PI) or co-PIs is/are considered the responsible individual[s] to ensure compliance, not only for him or herself, but by all other research and departmental personnel who engage in transactions related to the designated project. This may involve purchasing, shipping, foreign travel, learning to use a machine or particular technology, hiring persons from another country, or delivering project information at a conference.
Failure to follow prescribed federal, state, University and campus laws, regulations, policies, and procedures could result in sanctions.
Please use this as your “checklist” for reviewing compliance issues that may need to be taken care of. (More detailed information on each of these items can be found within the Export Control office website pages.)
If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, seek to learn and perform what needs to be done before the action is taken.
