Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) is subject to federal export control regulations. These regulations include the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) controlled by the U.S. Department of Commerce, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) managed by the U.S. Department of State, and the sanction regulations governing the transfer of assets governed by the U.S. Department of Treasury through its Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
It is the policy of SIUE that scholarly activities will be accomplished openly and without prohibitions or restrictions on the dissemination of the results of those activities, except as otherwise restricted by policy, regulation, or law. Federal export control regulations require SIUE to obtain permission or a license prior to sharing or communicating certain research information with or transferring certain research materials to non-U.S. citizens or entities.
The Associate Provost for Research administers export control regulation compliance related to scholarly activities at SIUE. Proposals and awards for externally sponsored projects and material transfer agreements under the administration of the Associate Provost for Research shall be reviewed for export control compliance.
Restrictions on the use of foreign nationals in program requirements or contractual requirements impose stringent export control obligations on the University, including restrictions of access to laboratories and research data. To the extent that contract clauses are inconsistent with SIUE’s policies on openness in research and nondiscrimination, such clauses will generally not be accepted. Those research projects that do not qualify for the public domain or fundamental research exemptions must be submitted to the Associate Provost for Research for evaluation and consideration in consultation with the appropriate department head and dean. In any case where a federal export control license is required by law, the activity or research will not commence until the license is obtained.
