Export Compliance is NOT optional, and that applies equally to universities and academic research institutions.
The connection between academic research and export compliance is perhaps not obvious at first, until one understands that export controls and regulations apply not only to goods and their physical export, but also to technologies, the definition of which includes direct or indirect transfer of knowledge.
For this reason, export controls present a significant challenge to research institutions, where research undertaken often triggers the law of deemed exports under the Export Administration Regulations and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations. According to the US Department of State, Technology is "released" for export when it is available to foreign nationals for visual inspection (such as reading technical specifications, plans, blueprints, etc.); when technology is exchanged orally; or when technology is made available by practice or application under the guidance of persons with knowledge of the technology.
Eagle can help universities and research institutions preserve academic openness by establishing a proactive Export Compliance & Governance program which minimizes the risks of non-compliance.
Because every export control issue is unique, its resolution is dependent on specific facts and this is where Eagle Compliance's extensive experience comes into play. We deeply understand what Export Control & Compliance Officers, Legal Counsel & Research Administrators from research institutions need to know in order to ensure comprehensive export compliance management.
