Export Control regulations are complex and require diligence to determine applicability to your specific research. It’s essential that you remain within the safe harbor of their exclusions and exceptions, or you risk daunting consequences.

Violations of Export Control laws are very serious for both you and your facility, and are subject to both criminal and administrative penalties. Criminal violators may be sentenced to prison time for up to 20 years. Financial punishments range from $250,000 to $1,000,000 per single violation. So, when multiple violations occur in the same project, penalties can be enormous.

Staying ahead of Export Control regulations and how they apply to your research can be onerous, especially for new researchers.  This is where export control expert, Niki Weiss, PMP, ECoP, can help. Niki is the Associate Director of Export Control at Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health.
