CSULB Policy Statement 22-23 - Export Controls Policy

The Export Controls Policy has been approved as CSULB Policy Statement 22-23 and is effective immediately. California State University Long Beach is committed to compliance with all U.S. government export control laws, guidance, and regulations. When faculty, staff, and/or students look to collaborate internationally or with foreign nationals within the U.S. or abroad, individuals must consider and ensure their compliance with the Export Control Regulations of the United States.  Accordingly, in some circumstances, California State University Long Beach may be required to obtain prior approval from the appropriate federal agency before engaging in activities that could constitute an export, such as, for example, allowing foreign nationals to participate in research, collaborating with a foreign company, or sharing research with foreign nationals unless an exemption from licensing requirements has been determined to apply. 

PIs should have expert knowledge of the type of information and technology involved in a research project or other university activity, such as presenting at conferences and discussing research findings with fellow researchers or collaborators. PIs must ensure that they do not disclose controlled information, such as information that has been provided to them under a corporate non-disclosure agreement or transfer controlled articles or services to a foreign national without prior authorization as required. Each PI must: 

  1. Understand his/her obligations under the export control laws; 
  2. Assist ORED in correctly classifying technology and items that are subject to export control laws; 
  3. Assist in developing and maintaining the conditions of a technology control plan for any activity, data, or equipment where the need for such a plan is identified; 
  4. Ensure that research staff and students have been trained on the technology plan and on the export control regulations should any apply.
