Federal regulations govern many
types of activities U.S. institutions are allowed to engage.
regulated activity is exportation. Generally, an export can occur two ways:
1. Through a physical transfer of an item from a U.S.
citizen or institution to a foreign national or foreign institution, either within the U.S. or abroad;
2.Through the transfer of technological information, data,
or research from a U.S. citizen to a foreign national or foreign institution, either within the U.S. or abroad.
A transfer that occurs
within the U.S. is considered a deemed export. Deemed exports are common within
the university setting and happen when international students, faculty, or
visitors have access to regulated equipment, software, or research. However,
most of these transfers can occur without an approval from the government
because they are covered under a regulatory exemption.
Institutions that intend to engage in an
activity that results in an export, which is not subject to an exemption, must
apply for and be granted a license before the activity commences.
and individuals that fail to comply with these regulations can be subjected to
both civil and criminal penalties.
