University officials may not be aware of exactly how U.S. export control laws and regulations apply to them, or that compliance is required and not voluntary. Worse, they may not realize the severity of potential consequences for violations. However, any university or research institute with a scientific research program, foreign visiting researchers and students, international research collaborations or overseas campuses is at risk of exporting controlled technology, releasing controlled technical data, or providing defense services and is therefore required to comply with U.S. export control laws and regulations. Compliance mandates that universities and research institutes establish internal organizations to develop comprehensive export compliance programs.

We will provide a timely overview of U.S. Export Controls and highlight the need for comprehensive export compliance programs. Included will be a discussion of the following:

• Primary U.S. Export Control Regimes
• Deemed Exports under U.S. Export Controls and How They Occur
• Expectations and Exemptions to the Deemed Export Rule
• Need for Export Authorizations
• Penalties for Export Violations
• Developing an Effective Export Compliance Program
