Export control regulations are a complex set of laws designed to control the transfer of information, technology, software, other items, and services considered to be important to the U.S. due to concerns about national security, economic competitiveness, or support of international treaties and foreign policy. RIT is committed to full compliance with all U.S. laws and regulations, including those controlling the export of technologies, services, and products, for both research and non-research activities. The university must also follow federal regulations when faculty and students travel
to certain sanctioned or embargoed countries for purposes of teaching or performing research.
OCE oversees the general export control program, provides counsel to the university community regarding export control concerns, manages export control training, and obtains licenses on behalf of the university when required. Sponsored Research Services is a partner in export control compliance, and reviews all externally sponsored projects for export control requirements. For assistance determining if an externally sponsored research project is controlled, or determining whether Technology Control Plan for a sponsored research project is required, contact the Director of Research Compliance.
