The objective of this EMCP is to ensure that our university's exports, deemed exports, re-exports, transfers, and activities are transacted consistent with all applicable federal requirements. Various departments have a role in the management of our export transactions and compliance with U.S. export laws and regulations. It is the university's expectation that each employee understands the standards described and the importance of creating a synergistic system to manage the overall export responsibilities. A vital part of an EMCP is the establishment of mechanisms within the university's daily operational procedures to provide safeguards for maintaining controlled technology. Such mechanisms help ensure that the right questions are being asked in order to preclude making shipments that are contrary to U.S. export controls, and therefore inconsistent with the university's and country's best interests.
A soundly implemented EMCP, coupled with good judgment, can greatly reduce the risk of inadvertently exporting to a restricted end-user, or for a prohibited end-use or activity.
To ensure the integrity of this system, individual feedback and suggestions for strengthening the procedures are encouraged. For questions and to send feedback and suggestions related to the EMCP procedures, please contact: Barbara DeHaven, Executive Director/Empowered Official, OSP, firstname.lastname@example.org, 201.216.8762.
