New York University (NYU) conducts research to produce, preserve and transmit new ideas, insights, and knowledge. NYU educates its students and promotes and nurtures scientific progress through the discovery of new knowledge while serving as a responsible steward of sponsor funds. NYU’s culture is built on the principles of freedom of inquiry and open exchange of knowledge while at the same time adhering to federal laws and regulations governing the exchange of research materials and results that are subject to export control regulations. Failure to comply with the laws and regulations can lead to both institutional and individual civil and criminal penalties.
To support the faculty with this complex area of compliance, NYU has created the position of the Import & Export Compliance Officer, established within the Office of Compliance and Risk Management, to help the NYU community navigate issues relating to import and export compliance. Wendy Epley serves in that role and may be reached at Wendy.Epley@nyu.edu or (212) 998-6884 with questions you may have regarding export control regulations or licensing requirements that may impact your research and/or scholarly activities, including international travel.
You may also contact your colleagues in the Office of Sponsored Programs (specifically, your Project or Assistant Contract Officer) for information concerning this area. Online resources are posted as they become available on the Compliance website at http://www.nyu.edu/compliance.
