Office of Regulatory Research Compliance
Introduction



 It is the position of Howard University Office of Regulatory Research Compliance that research  
 conducted by the faculty, staff, and students of the Howard University is in the public domain and 
 considered fundamental research, as that term is defined in export control legislation promulgated by 
 the U.S. Department of Commerce and U.S. Department of State. Most Howard University research 
 will therefore be exempt from export control licensing requirements. However, where export control  
 regulations are applicable to our research activities, the University requires full compliance with the 
 law. 


Export controls and trade sanctions are the United States laws and regulations that regulate and 
restrict the release of critical technologies, software, equipment, chemical, biological materials and 
other materials, and services to foreign nationals and foreign countries for reasons of foreign policy 
and national security. 

These laws apply to virtually all fields of science and engineering and restrict the shipment,  
transmission or transfer of certain commodities, software, technology, data and services from the U.S. 
to foreign countries. Deemed exports, i.e., the release of controlled information to foreign nationalslocated in 
the U.S., are also restricted under these laws and regulations. Export control laws apply to all activities - not   
just sponsored research projects.
