UTHSC Export Control Policy
UTHSC has recently approved a policy covering export controls. Export control
laws are federal regulations that govern transmission of certain information,
technologies, and/or commodities to foreign nationals while they are in the U.S OR
overseas to anyone, including U.S. citizens. Penalties for non-compliance with these
federal laws are severe and impact the researcher as well as the institution.
The UTHSC Export Control policy is located at http://www.uthsc.edu/policies/ w932_document_show.php?p=568. This policy also covers "Deemed Exports," which is the primary export control issue facing universities. Deemed Exports involve the release of covered technology to a foreign national in the United States. Examples of deemed exports include laboratory tours, face-to-face interactions, telephone conversations, e-mails, and sharing computer files with foreign nationals when the technology involved falls under Export Control Regulations.
Questions about Export Control Regulations at UTHSC should be directed to Martha McCool (email@example.com) at 901-448-1264. You may read more information about export controls at the federal government website http://www.bis.doc.gov/licensing/exportingbasics.htm as well as the UT System web site http://research.utk.edu/exportcontrol/.
