Export Controls: Forms

Export Controls Assessment Questionnaire (DOC)
This questionnaire is for use by any member of the university community in assessing U.S. export control issues in general. For those activities related to research projects, the faculty/staff member and/or Principal Investigator (PI) for a research project is the person most qualified to provide information necessary to determine whether the activities are subject to restrictions imposed by export control laws.

Nuclear Research Checklist (DOC)
This questionnaire is to assist the university in assessing whether nuclear-related research activities will involve any technology, services, software, or commodities that are subject to U.S. export control laws, including:  Department of Energy’s Part 810 Regulations, Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Part 110 Regulations, Department of Commerce’s Export Administration Regulations (EAR), and the Department of State’s International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).

Certification on the Handling of Export Controlled Information
Recipients of export controlled technical data may be held personally liable for disclosures to unauthorized foreign persons. As a result, members of the university community must take reasonable measures to prevent the disclosure to and use and access of export controlled technical data by unauthorized, unlicensed foreign persons.

When it is determined that activities or projects involve export-controlled data, information, or technologies, faculty members, researchers, and staff are required to attest to implementation of such controls by completing a Certification on the Handling of Export-Controlled Information which is made available only through OVPR Export Control.

Export Control Guidance Sheet

This guidance breifly defines exports, helps researchers comply with export control laws and GW policy, and provides contact information for researchers if university activities trigger an export control review.

Technology Control Plan (TCP)

A Technology Control Plan (TCP) is a customized management plan which outlines the procedures in place to prevent access to export-controlled items, technologies, data, or information by unauthorized individuals.

The TCP will include a description of the export-controlled information, a physical and informational security plan, and personnel screening and briefing procedures. All project personnel will be required to read, understand, and sign the TCP prior to working on the project. All project personnel must also sign the Briefing and Certification on the Handling and Protection of Export Controlled Information​. The PI must notify OVPR Export Control of personnel changes so that the TCP can be updated and approved.
