Attached please find the University of New Orleans Export Control Policy and Procedures (AP 28.04), effective July 15, 2011. Export control laws are federal regulations that control the access and transmission of certain information, technologies, and commodities. The laws apply to transmission of controlled items overseas or to a foreign national on U.S. soil. While many University activities are exempt, the consequences of violating export control regulations can be severe for both the University and the individual, and include loss of research funding, fines, and/or prison time. For that reason, it is important that faculty and staff understand their obligation to comply with export control laws and regulations. Faculty and staff are encouraged to review the export control materials located on the UNO Compliance webpage: http://compliance.uno.edu/Home/ExportControl . A good place to start is the MS Power Point presentation on UNO Export Control Basics. Faculty and staff engaged in research should note that, while the campus will assist with export control compliance, the primary responsibility rests with the principal investigator. Additional information and guidance regarding export controls and the obligations of research faculty and staff can be found on the ORSP website: http://w2.uno.edu/orsp/ORSPHome/ExportCompliance.
