Export Controls

Export Controls are U.S. laws that regulate how certain information, technologies and materials are distributed overseas to anyone (U.S. citizen or foreign national) or to a foreign national on U.S. soil. Export Controls involve not just transporting tangible items such as laptops, research equipment, and data outside the United States, but sharing information in conversation, or even sending e-mails. It is important that faculty, researchers, and staff at Clark University understand their obligations under export control regulations and comply as completely as possible.

Clark’s policy on Export Control Regulations and Research is linked below. Within the policy document are links to an Export Control Decision Chart and Checklist, which will help you determine whether your project may be subject to export control regulations.

If you have any questions about export control regulations, please contact OSPR (ospr@clarku.edu).
