2.21  Export Control

In order to engage in research activities which include the collaboration of foreign colleagues and graduate students, investigators must comply with certain restrictive Federal regulations called, collectively, “export control regulations.” The purpose of these regulations is to control the dissemination of information and/or materials which may have bearing on our national security. While export control regulations provide exemptions for "educational information" and “fundamental research," both externally and internally funded research may be subject to export control regulations. Investigators should not assume that unsponsored research is exempt from export regulations. Additional information and assistance for complying with export regulations is available on the Research Compliance web pages http://vpred.uark.edu/units/rscp/. Assistance with determining the control status of research activities, sponsored and unsponsored, is available by contacting Research Compliance or the Office of Technology Licensing.
