Export Controls Resources
University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) faculty, staff, students, and affiliates (including non-UAA consultants, collaborators, etc.) must comply with all applicable export laws and regulations. These guidelines specifically address the conduct of university activities subject to any of the following:
- the Arms Export Control Act,
- the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR),
- the Export Administration Act,
- the Export Administration Regulations (EAR),
- and all economic and trade sanctions administered and enforced by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
Activities subject to export controls include, but are not limited to the transfer of controlled information, materials, software, technology or assets to foreign countries or to foreign nationals in the United States.
The UAA Executive Director Compliance and Commercialization (EDCC) is charged with oversight of all aspects of the UAA export management program.
A 2007 report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) entitled "Export Controls: Agencies Should Assess Vulnerabilities and Improve Guidance for Protecting Export-Controlled Information at Universities" is a positive discussion about universities' efforts to inform themselves and become knowledgeable about export controls.
