Marquette University must comply with the United States export control laws and regulations, including those implemented by the Department of Commerce through its Export Administration Regulations (EAR), the Department of State through its International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), and the restrictions imposed by the Treasury Department through its Office of Foreign Asset Control (OEAC). Violations of the regulations carry both criminal and civil penalties for both individuals and the university. In addition, the federal government may impose other sanctions including debarment and loss of eligibility for federal funding.
The Council on Governmental Relations (COGR) is an association of leading research-intensive universities. COGR’s primary function consists in helping to develop policies and practices that fairly reflect the mutual interests and separate obligations of federal agencies and universities in federal research and training. COGR deals primarily with policies and technical issues involved in the administration of federally-sponsored programs at universities. It keeps under continuing review the problems potentially inherent in the development of federal policies, regulations, and other federal initiatives.
Marquette University is a subscriber to the Visual Compliance program provided by MSR Inc. The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs is authorized to perform Visual Compliance searches and screens.
Exports are governed by three federal agencies and the regulations are complex and often confusing. Visual Compliance gives us the advantage of being able to perform the required reviews efficiently and comprehensively. It greatly enhances our ability to comply with federal requirements and minimizes delays that can negatively impact research programs.
Physical and deemed exports need to be screened. This may also involve screening individuals and entities against the “denied parties” listings, classifying equipment within federal controlled technology categories, and several other types of reviews. This helps us determine whether export licenses are required for both deemed exports and physical shipments.
