In June 2022, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) provided multiple recommendations to U.S. universities with assistance from the U.S. Department of Commerce and Homeland Security, referencing the proposed dangers of conducting research using foreign controlled goods and sensitive information. The aim of this public notice was to help universities strengthen their export control compliance procedures, and in-turn mitigate the risk of illicit export and import activity. Two of the key issues raised were the efforts required to enforce export control regulations, particularly for deemed exports at universities, and the extent to which the U.S. agencies shared information relevant to export control.
Please join S&P Global Market Intelligence in this webinar, where we will review the recommendations made by the U.S. GAO and discuss in detail the complexities of trying to identify potential dual-use, military and sanctioned goods that are controlled under the U.S. Commerce Control List and U.S. Munitions List.
