An Export can occur through any oral, written, electronic or visual disclosure, shipment, transfer or transmission of any controlled commodity, technology (information, technical data, or assistance) or software/codes to a non-U.S. entity or individual, wherever located.
Export control laws regulate the distribution to foreign nationals and foreign countries of strategically important technology, services and information to protect national security, foreign policy, and economic goals. These laws apply to ALL UNIVERSITY ACTIVITIES – not just sponsored research projects.
Export Control regulations may apply to the following activities:
- The ability of foreign scholars and students to participate in export-controlled research at PVAMU.
- The ability of PVAMU researchers to disclose or discuss previously unpublished research at conferences and meetings where foreign nationals are in attendance.
- The ability of PVAMU researchers to engage in collaborations with foreign researchers, including restrictions on teaching foreign collaborators how to use export-controlled items in research.
- The ability to transfer research equipment abroad or any commodity, technology (information, technical data, or assistance) or software/codes.
