The Impact of Export Controls on Higher Education and Scientific Institutions

Posted by Gary M. Barraco

But surveys conducted by Association of University Export Controls Officers (AUECO) 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 have 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.

Santa's Restricted Party Screening Could Cost Him this Christmas - Could Yours?

Posted by Mandy Hyde

With the recent changes to export restrictions and sanctions around the globe, Santa may have trouble delivering his presents this Christmas. Although Kris Kringle and a majority of exporters already realize what's at stake if they commit export violations, a recent survey found that only 53% of exporters have a full Export Compliance Program (ECP) in place. For many companies, the variety of components involved with implementing a full ECP can be daunting. One way to begin the process of building a complete ECP is to implement a robust, automated screening process with restricted party screening and sanction capabilities.The recurring revisions to export restrictions and sanctions from governments around the world make it challenging for any company to still be manually screening. The United States, especially, has been busy trying to make updates to exporting policies as the Trump administration re-evaluates Obama-era trade tactics. How sure are you that your company's compliance process is keeping you out of harm's way? Are you prepared for the most recent updates to sanctions and entity lists, as well as potential changes still to come in 2018? If you had to pause before answering either of those questions, you and your company could already be at risk.
