Export Controls for Researchers

Deemed Exports

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.
