Export Compliance for Universities & Research Institutions
It is typical in today’s world that universities are screening students to ensure they are not on any government denied party and admissibility lists.
But surveys conducted by Association of University Export Controls Officers (AUECO) and National Association of College & University Attorneys (NACUA) show that the majority of academic institutions are challenged with regulatory compliance in multiple areas of their organization, not just student screening.
Increased enforcement from government agencies and personal lawsuits has added a costly layer of risk to higher ed compliance. The importance of a holistic compliance program, including a centralized system leveraging technology, has become vital for universities and research institutions.
