University of Arizona employees working on an export controlled project secured with a Technology Control Plan (TCP) are required to successfully complete the initial export control training module prior to the start of the project and to complete export control continuing education training annually throughout the duration of the secured project or for as long as the TCP remains in place.
Failure to successfully complete the initial training as well as the annual continuing education requirements will result in your removal from the project until the training has been completed. Principal Investigators conducting research secured with a TCP are responsible for ensuring that all project personnel complete the required export control training.
If the University Export Control Program (UECP) determines that a project is export controlled and requires a TCP, the Contracting Services will not process the pertinent sponsored research agreement, contract, or non-disclosure/proprietary information agreement until receiving confirmation from UECP that all project personnel have successfully completed the export control training requirements and a TCP has been implemented. In addition, no work on the project can begin until all project personnel have successfully completed the export control training and the TCP has been signed.
The University Export Control Program is responsible for export control training content and for maintaining training records.
Please contact the University Export Control Program for additional information or questions regarding export control training requirements.
