Export Control

Foreign Universities

Foreign Universities Listed as Parties of Concern by the Commerce Department

The following degree granting institutions, research institutes, and entities that are owned, operated, or are directly affiliated with them appear on the Department of Commerce Entity List or Unverified List (as of June 2020).

The Entity List contains foreign persons including businesses, research institutions, government and private organizations, and individuals and other types of legal persons that are subject to specific licensing requirements for export, reexport and/or transfer of specified items.

Individuals and entities listed on the Entity List are, according to the U.S. government, reasonably believed to be involved, or to pose a significant risk of being or becoming involved, in activities contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States.

Research collaborations, visitors to UGA, and the exchange of items or information with any Entity Listed institution must be vetted by the Office of Export Control.

The Unverified List designation is a “red flag” which restricts and impacts exports to the listed institutions, requiring extra UGA due diligence. Institutions are added to the Unverified List when the Department of Commerce is unable to confirm their “bona fides” and has concerns about their legitimacy and reliability as a party to export transactions.
