Export Controls for Researchers
A deemed export is
- The transfer or disclosure by any means
- of information or technical data concerning export-controlled equipment, materials, or items
- to a foreign person in the U.S.
Example: Discussing your new technology with a Yale lab associate who is a foreign national.
Deemed exports are of particular concern to Yale because
- A large number of foreign persons conduct research at Yale.
- Information can easily be “exported” to foreign persons by visual inspection, oral disclosure, web sites, and email.
- Yale policy strongly discourages any restrictions on the participation of foreign students, faculty, and researchers in the research enterprise.
