U.S. Export Controls: Responsibilities of Faculty, Staff and Students

DDD Memo: University’s Policies Regarding Compliance With U.S. Export Controls: Responsibilities of Faculty, Staff and Students

This memorandum updates the University of Florida’s policies on compliance with U.S. export control laws and regulations and reminds the University community of the importance of these federal requirements, which apply to individuals (e.g., faculty, staff and students), as well as to the University itself. Violations are subject to significant criminal and civil sanctions (including the potential of prison and fines for individuals and fines for the institution), loss of federal contracting privileges, loss of export privileges, and damage to reputation.

FOREIGN COLLABORATION OR TRAVEL SCREENING—FOR U.S. LAW COMPLIANCE

If you plan to collaborate with persons or entities abroad, or to travel abroad, or to have visitors or collaborators from abroad, or who are foreign nationals, in any University of Florida capacity or with UF funding, facilities, items or materials, complete the Fundamentals of Export Controls and Trade Sanctions and Embargoes for Research Universities document first and follow the instructions to ensure compliance with U.S. export controls, trade sanctions, embargoes and anti-terrorism laws. 

Contact Brandi Boniface (352-392-3516 or boniface@ufl.edu) in the Division of Sponsored Research (DSR) if you have any questions.  

(UF is concerned about your UF-capacity activities and UF facilities, items and materials, but you should be concerned about your personal activities, facilities, items and materials too.)
