Export Control Guidance

When traveling abroad, taking certain items, providing certain services or meeting with certain people can present export control problems for CUNY faculty, staff, students and postdoctoral scholars (“CUNY affiliates”).

Travel to most countries does not present an export control problem.  Travel to some countries may present a problem that is easily addressed, provided we create and maintain records that show we found the travel to be exempt from the regulations.  But when an export control license is required for travel, it is crucial that we obtain it prior to the trip.  Violations of the export control laws carry severe civil and criminal penalties.

Please review the following documents, and – if/where needed – use forms provided here to report a potential export control problem:

1) Memorandum by Dr. Gillian Small, Vice Chancellor for Research

2) International Travel Briefing

3) CUNY Export Control Preliminary Evaluation Form

4) CUNY Export Control site

York College’s designated Export Control Administrator is Dr. Holger Henke, Assistant Provost
