Export Compliance Policy

The University of Chicago's Export Compliance Policy 

It is the policy of the University of Chicago that all of its employees, departments, divisions, domestic and foreign subsidiaries, and affiliates must comply with U.S. Government export control laws and regulations. No transactions are to be conducted by or on behalf of the University of Chicago contrary to U.S. export control laws and regulations.

University of Chicago employees with export responsibilities are required to have a working knowledge of export control laws and regulations, especially those governing their specific job functions, as well as a working knowledge of company export control policies and procedures.

The University of Chicago supports U.S. efforts to prevent proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Special care must be taken to prevent any transaction with entities involved in the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and prohibited activities involving missile, nuclear, chemical and biological warfare.

No transactions are to be initiated with individuals on the Denied Persons List, Special Designated Nationals or Terrorists List, or with any firms owned by or associated with those parties. Nor shall exports be made to parties on the Entity List.

Additionally, University of Chicago employees outside the U.S. may not re-export any commodity, technology, or software unless appropriate authorization has been obtained. This includes foreign produced items that are the direct product of U.S. technology and software or foreign made items that are subject to national security controls of the U.S. as designated by the CCL.

All of the University of Chicago personnel involved in exports and re-exports, traffic, and related functions are required to comply with the policies and procedures outlined in the University of Chicago’s Export Control Compliance Program & Manual maintained by University Research Administration. Under no circumstances will exports be made contrary to U.S. export regulations and laws.
