POLICY and STATEMENT OF COMPLIANCE
WITH U.S. EXPORT AND SANCTION LAWS
THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA-LINCOLN
One fundamental mission of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln (UNL) is
research, that is, to create, preserve, and disseminate knowledge with the extraordinary talent and dedication of our faculty. Our innovative research is a key driver in the success of this university. However, we as investigators need to be aware that research can have multiple uses and applications and can lead to unintended international impacts. The Office of Research has the responsibility to inform our university community about federal regulations that affect their work and to assist our researchers with compliance with these regulations. UNL is committed to compliance with all Export Control Regulations.
This Policies and Statement of Compliance Manual for Export Control Management at UNL has been prepared to assist the faculty, staff, students, and anyone affiliated with the university with the rules and regulations associated with Export Controls. Compliance with export control regulations is an important responsibility of conducting research in this area, and carries serious penalties for violations. We know that you join us in devoting your full efforts toward fulfilling these requirements. Contact our export control specialist at (402) 472-4491 to consult on the application of these regulations in your research.
