Export Control: Assessing UGA’s Risk

The UGA Office of the Vice President for Research commissioned an assessment of UGA’s risk through interviews and discussions with UGA faculty and administrators earlier this year. The results of the assessment and recommendations are presented in a video.

Federal export control regulations govern what scientific instruments, technologies, software and materials can be accessed by foreign nationals studying, visiting, or working in the U.S., as well as what items can be transferred abroad to certain destinations based on the type of item, end use, and user and country destination.

The UGA Office of the Vice President for Research commissioned an assessment of UGA’s risk through interviews and discussions with UGA faculty and administrators earlier this year. Its objectives were to identify current and potential risk-sensitive research activities; outline compliance requirements; provide tools that UGA can implement; and make recommendations for an export control compliance program.

The results of the assessment and recommendations are presented in this video.

In the coming months, an Export Control program will be established in collaboration with a number of operational and academic units on campus.  In addition to interfacing with regulators, the program will provide support and training for faculty and staff conducting business of any type with the international community.
