Export Control - Q&A session

Tue 14 Sep 2021


The United Kingdom, alongside most other countries, enforces controls on the export of military and dual use (i.e. civil technologies which have the potential to be used for military purposes) items, software and technology (‘technology’ is defined as information necessary for the development, production or use of goods).

As such, researchers at the University of Cambridge may be subject to UK Export Control legislation, and also US export licence conditions for technology imported from the United States. These regulations have the potential to apply to a range of activities, including research, teaching, visiting scientists and technology transfer.

Failure to observe these rules is a criminal offence for the researcher (responsible for primary awareness as the application of the rules to their research) and/or the University (failure to provide adequate guidance/internal processes/regulation at the appropriate level). It is therefore extremely important that researchers and those who support researchers are aware of their responsibilities under law and University compliance procedures.

This session provides an opportunity for researchers and professional services staff to raise questions and discuss issues relating to export control following completion of an online training video and quiz. The training video, quiz and Q&A will provide participants with an understanding of the main export control requirements applying to research and the University's approach to compliance.
