Dealing with export control compliance in a university setting can be confusing. This webinar will serve as a primer on export controls, focused on issues that pertain to institutions of higher learning. We will discuss the regulatory basis for the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), and sanctions under the Office of Foreign Assets Controls (OFAC)—specifically, the ramifications for academic research as a "deemed export."

In this program, you will learn about how fundamental research is defined under the law and how to determine what qualifies as fundamental research, ancillary issues pertaining to fundamental research, elements of a technology control plan, what requires licensing, and the policies and procedures you should have in place to address export controls. Additionally, you will learn good practices for complying with the proposed export controls certification contained in the revised I-129 "Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker" form.


  • Identify general issues that could pose export controls compliance concerns
  • Understand how the fundamental research exemption excludes research from required export controls licensing and documentation
  • Understand the concept of "deemed exports" 
  • Gain awareness of good practices for complying with U.S. export controls laws when working or traveling abroad
