Importance of Export Control Compliance

University of California, San Francisco is committed to complying with U.S. export control regulations, and is building a compliance program designed to support the clinical, educational, and research pursuits of our community while promoting adherence to U.S. export controls. 

National security and trade protection are the primary reasons for federal export control laws and regulations that restrict the transfer of specific items, information, and services. In general, the export control regulations apply to:

UCSF follows the University of California Policy on Export Control (effective June 21, 2018), which applies to all University staff, faculty, academic appointees, students (including student employees), and non-employee participants in University programs.

It is critically important for all University personnel to identify when their activities may trigger export controls.  If you think an activity may be subject to export control regulations, please escalate the question to Joan Doherty, Export Control Officer, at [email protected] or 415-502-2792.

Sincerely,

Brian E. Smith, JD, MBA
Interim Cheif Ethics and Compliance Officer
