Export Controls: Compliance Questionnaires, Summaries and Certifications

Record of Export Control Review Questionnaire

The university has developed a questionnaire entitled Record of Export Control Review (DOC), an internal document to assist members of the university community in assessing U.S. export control issues in general, and evaluating whether a particular research, educational or other  project or contemplated activity would qualify for an exemption. Faculty, staff, and students should contact OVPR Export Control or assistance with completing this Record of Export Control Review questionnaire (DOC), and to receive additional information regarding possible export control issues.

Export Control Summary

To assist with evaluating whether export controls may apply, please see the Overview of Export Control Policy and Procedures (PDF).

Certification of the Handling of Export Controlled Information

In rare cases, a certification may be required where an educational activity/research project will involve the receipt and/or use of technical data that is controlled under U.S. export control laws. These include the Export Administration Regulations (“EAR”), enforced by the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security, or the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (“ITAR”), enforced by the State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC). In such cases, a certification may be required that the export–controlled Information is being handled properly in accordance with GW’s Export Control Policy and applicable laws and regulations. In such cases, please complete the Certification of the Handling of Export Controlled Information.
