Empowering Universities with ITAR and EAR Services

In the academic landscape of the United States, universities are hubs of innovation, research, and collaboration. However, when it comes to international projects, especially those involving sensitive technologies, navigating the complex regulatory frameworks of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) can be daunting.

Tailored Services for Universities:

Reliant Defense offers specialized ITAR and EAR services tailored to the unique needs and challenges faced by universities across the United States. Our services are designed to empower academic institutions to pursue international collaborations, research endeavors, and technology transfers while ensuring strict compliance with export control regulations.

Our Comprehensive Offerings Include:

  1. Compliance Training and Workshops: We provide customized training sessions and workshops tailored to the specific needs of university faculty, researchers, and administrators. Our experts offer comprehensive guidance on understanding ITAR and EAR regulations, identifying controlled items and technologies, conducting export classifications, and navigating licensing requirements.
  2. Export Control Assessments: Our experienced team conducts thorough assessments of university research projects, technology transfers, and international collaborations to identify potential ITAR and EAR implications. We evaluate project objectives, funding sources, technology disclosures, and export activities to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.
  3. Licensing and Authorization Support: We assist universities in preparing and submitting license applications to the relevant regulatory authorities, such as the U.S. Department of State (for ITAR) or the U.S. Department of Commerce (for EAR). Our experts provide guidance throughout the licensing process, ensuring accurate documentation and timely submission to facilitate international projects.
  4. Policy Development and Implementation: We collaborate with university stakeholders to develop and implement robust export control policies and procedures tailored to the institution’s unique academic and research environment. Our goal is to establish a culture of compliance and awareness, promoting responsible international engagement while safeguarding sensitive technologies.
  5. Disclosure of External Professional Activities Review: Disclosure of external professional activities involving the export of controlled items and data is crucial for a University’s compliance with export control regulations like the EAR and ITAR.

Reliant serves as a reviewer of these disclosures to help determine if a license is required.
