International travel1

International Travel

Rutgers University faculty, staff and students who travel outside the United States, whether to a conference, for field work or to collaborate with another institution must be aware that their Rutgers hardware, software and technology, including Laptops, PDA’s, Cell Phones and Digital Storage Devices are subject to U.S. Export Controls.

Such “exports” may require a license from the U.S. government prior to travel. 


International travel2

International Travel

  • Where do we start:

    • Step 1: What are you taking with you?

    • Step 2: Where are you going?

    • Step 3: Who are you meeting?

    • Step 4: Why do they want to collaborate?

  • The completion of each step will assist in final determination of what may be required prior to International Travel.


Step 1 what are you taking with you

Step 1: WHAT are you taking with you?

  • Clean Electronics

    • a Laptop, PDA, Cell Phone or Digital Storage Device that does not contain any export restricted software or technology.

    • Used to check e-mail, access non controlled data.

  • But you may need to bring some information with you:

    • What is on the electronic device

      • Information in the public domain-OK

      • Information obtained thru fundamental research-OK

      • Information obtained thru a Grant that identified controls on foreign nationals-May require an Export License


Step 1 what are you taking with you1

Step 1: WHAT are you taking with you?

  • An item, technology or software controlled by ITAR.

    • In almost every scenario you will need to obtain an export license prior to travel.

  • An item, technology or software controlled by EAR.

    • In several scenarios' the EAR allows a U.S. Citizen to travel internationally with EAR controlled items, technology or software.

    • The following scenarios' are covered under License exception TMP.


Step 1 what are you taking with you2

Step 1 what are you taking with you4

Step 1: WHAT are you taking with you?

  • License Exception – TMP

    • In many cases the use of TMP requires reporting to BIS.

    • In coordination with Rutgers Export Control Officer a TMP Cover Letter can be good for up to 12 months and cover multiple projects.


Step 2 where are you going

Step 2: Where are you going?

  • Depending what you are taking with you, export controls may vary.

    • Exports to the U.K. are viewed differently than Exports to the P.R.C.

    • In most cases embargo destinations will require a license and in most cases will be denied.

      • Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan or Syria.

    • If your travel includes an Embargo Destination contact the Rutgers Export Control Officer.

      • Just because they wont stop you from buying a ticket in Mexico City, USCBP in EWR will be very interested in that passport stamp.


Step 3 who are you meeting

Step 3: Who are you meeting?

  • Screening

    • The Dept. of Commerce, Dept. of State and Dept. of Treasury all maintain lists of Persons and Entities that may be prohibited from export transactions.

    • An export license may be required based on who you are meeting.

    • Consolidated list-

      • http://www.bis.doc.gov/export_consolidated_list/consolidated_party_list_final.txt


Step 4 why do they want to collaborate

Step 4: Why do they want to collaborate?

  • More of an Art than a Science!

    • What is the actual End Use of your knowledge?

    • Ulterior motives?

      • Your research into low power IC’s or your paper on radiation hardened IC’s?

      • Your expertise on traffic flow in urban area’s or the high end proprietary encryption on your laptop.

      • Your knowledge of early American literature or the list of Israeli students and or scientists at Rutgers?

    • Signs you may not be in Kansas anymore…..

      • Military uniforms in your audience.

      • Meeting location changed to a military base.

      • Questions not in line with your work or presentation.

      • Leave your things here, no one will touch them.


Remember

Remember!

  • Before you leave the U.S.

    • Consider what you are taking, where you are going, who you are working with, and why are they collaborating with you (what is the desired end result?). It is important to consider each trip separately as regulations change frequently.

    • Upon your return to the US, your laptop and other electronic devices may be subject to search or it may be seized without probable cause, suspicion or warrant. Be sure to safeguard your personal, sensitive, export controlled, and proprietary data appropriately.

  • If you don't need it – Leave it!

  • Some quick points:

    • Data obtained from Fundamental Research is not controlled.

      • But the equipment used to obtain the data may be controlled.

    • Items in the scope of the ITAR will always need an Export License.

    • Items in the scope of the EAR may need a license, but in many cases will qualify for the TMP exception.

    • Travel to embargo destinations will require a license and in most cases will be denied.

    • Collaboration with another institution or meeting with persons and or entities on certain lists will require a license and in most cases will be denied.
