Training - Export Compliance

Directors, Principal Investigators and Administrators, having responsibility for projects involving export-controlled material and/or international collaborations, must ensure that employees, and others within their respective areas of responsibility, are properly instructed in the handling of export-controlled items and information. Links to self-paced online training resources can be found below.  Export-awareness and compliance training from the Export Compliance Program Manager is available to any individual or department, upon request.

Prior to commencing work, export compliance training is mandatory for all scientists, engineers, and software engineers regardless of whether known export controlled items or technical data are involved.  It is the responsibility of the PI, in coordination with Administrators and Export Compliance Coordinators, to ensure that export compliance awareness training has taken place prior to commencing work. Training must be refreshed annually.

Contact your ECC or the OGC for assistance prior to export, if exporting anything other than Fundamental Research.
