Export Controls

Export Controls


Whether you are new to the export controls field or have worked in it for a few years, one thing is for certain: it is a complicated field. Becoming familiar with the U.S. export control regulations and then applying them to an academic environment takes time and patience. The full array of export regulations span many government agencies who apply different types of controls based on their primary missions. This NCURA workshop will introduce the primary U.S. export control regulations and explain how they apply to an academic environment. With this understanding, helpful tools and exercises will be introduced which will show participants how to identify export controls risk at their institutions and then how to establish an effective program to manage this risk.


Who Should Attend? Beginner (<1 year) to Intermediate (1-5 years) academic practitioners having limited to full export control responsibilities at their institutions.


  • Gain an understanding of the primary U.S. export control regulations
  • Understand how to apply these regulations to the activities at your institution
  • Understand the risk associated with export controls and how to mitigate and manage this risk
  • Understand the elements of an effective Export Compliance Management Program
