Export Control Compliance Manual

The Cornell University Export Control Compliance manual is available from this site as a PDF. 

The Cornell University Export Control Compliance Manual addresses obligations set forth by various U.S. Government Agencies. These laws and regulations relate to: 

  • Sharing proprietary, confidential or otherwise controlled information, source code, or technology with foreign nationals located in the U.S. or abroad; 
  • Sending or taking tangible items or controlled technology or source code to another country; 
  • Collaborations with foreign entities; 
  • Interactions with embargoed or sanctioned countries, organizations, or individuals. 

The relevant federal regulations found in the Code of Federal Regulations are as follows: 

  • Title 15, the Export Administration Regulations (EAR); 
  • Title 22, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR); and 
  • Title 31, the Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) 

Individuals, faculty, researchers, employees, and students at Cornell University are therefore encouraged to contact Cornell University's Export Control Office whenever they expect to be involved with any export control issues. 

Cornell University is fully committed to complying with all U.S. Government export control laws and regulations. In compliance with federal regulations, it is Cornell University’s strategy to protect its fundamental research exclusion by negotiating the elimination of all contractual clauses that restrict publication rights or limit participation of foreign nationals in its research and sponsored projects.
