laws are federal regulations that govern how certain information,
technologies, and commodities can be transmitted overseas to anyone,
including U.S. citizens, or to a foreign national on U.S. soil.
These laws have the potential of impacting most of the research
conducted at the University of Pennsylvania. This is true for the
research whether the source of funding is a federal grant, industrial
agreement, fellowship or other type of research proposal. It is
critical for faculty and other researchers to understand their obligations
under the Export control laws. Failure to comply with these laws
can result in severe consequences for the University of Pennsylvania
as well as the individual researchers, such as fines and imprisonment. This website is designed to assist faculty and staff in the understanding
of Export control laws and guide them as to what steps should be
taken to ensure that research proposals are reviewed to ensure compliance.
Please review these materials and contact ORS if you have any questions.
