To delineate the policy and guidelines governing the participation of faculty, staff and students in research falling under the Export Control and Trade Sanctions regulations.
Export Control and Trade Sanctions (EC&TS) are federal laws and regulations that govern the export of technologies, equipment, software, select hazardous agents, and related data and services. EC&TS extend to the release or sharing of restricted technology or data with foreign nationals inside or outside the U.S. In general, licenses are required for the export of items and technologies controlled under EC&TS. While the EC&TS include provisions where fundamental research at universities may be exempt from licensing requirements, the EC&TS apply to all research and export activities undertaken at the University of Delaware.
The University of Delaware shall comply with Export Control and Trade Sanction (EC&TS) regulations governing applicable Sponsored Projects. The Provost serves as the final authority in any dispute resolution. The Associate Provost for Research and the University Export Compliance Officer have been designated as the Empowered Officials. The Empowered Officials will be responsible for EC&TS policies and procedures and will oversee the EC&TS compliance program including signing of Technology Control Plans (TCPs), license and disclosure requests, auditing of controlled Sponsored Projects and reporting of any EC&TS violations to the appropriate agencies. The Empowered Officials will develop appropriate procedures and will be responsible for implementing and maintaining EC&TS compliance procedures including TCP management, auditing and documentation.
