It is the University of Rhode Island’s (URI) policy that all personnel, including employees, visiting scientists, postdoctoral fellows, students, and other persons retained by or working at or for URI conduct their affairs in accordance with U.S. laws and regulations, including compliance with U.S. export control laws and regulations applicable to its operations.
Export controls are a dynamic and multi-faceted body of law and regulations that can affect a research institution in many ways. Compliance with the statutory and regulatory requirements is critical because non-compliance may carry serious civil and/or criminal penalties for both the researcher and the institution. Export controls present a special challenge to research institutions because they demand that national security and the necessary safeguards it mandates be reconciled with the fundamental principle of unrestricted academic freedom, which includes the right to freely publish research findings within an unfettered global academic community.
Transactions that may Trigger an Export Control Issue
• Exposing foreign nationals to research labs?
• Traveling overseas to attend a conference, conduct research or other work-related reason?
• Engaging in international research collaborations?
• Shipping equipment, certain biological materials, software or technology to a foreign country?
• Working with a foreign country subject to US embargo?
• Sponsor approval rights over publication?
• Exchanging controlled information with foreign colleagues?
The Office of Research Integrity and the Office of Sponsored Projects are here to assist faculty and staff navigate and understand the export control laws and regulations as they relate to their work at URI.
