U.S. Export Control

U.S. export control laws may apply to items, technology, hardware, software, data and/or services related to the various research activities underway at the University of Nevada, Reno. These laws prohibit the release of controlled items or data to foreign entities and persons. This has the potential to limit researchers' ability to disseminate information and/or prevent international collaboration in certain research areas. Violations of export control regulations can result in the loss of research contracts, monetary fines, and/or prison sentences.

Typical examples of provisions in award grants/contracts that are export controlled are:

  • Restriction of access to, or publication of research/technical data.
  • Limitations to the participation of foreign nationals in the research effort.
  • Inclusion of a clause that requires the University to follow export control regulations for the project.

To determine whether you have export controlled items, view the University Export Control Checklist as well as the Export Control Policy.

If there are yes responses on the completed Export Control Checklist, mandatory training is required using the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) modules for Export Control. The manager of regulatory compliance will implement the export control policy with you to minimize the research resource risks for you and the University.
