How does the University vet foreign partners before traveling abroad?

Prior to travel, to avoid collaborating with a prohibited party, foreign parties should be screened using the Restricted Party Screening tool. Export Control or your Department Administrator can assist with conducting screenings. 

Is a license necessary to travel to or conduct activities (even remotely) with sanctioned countries? 

Depending on your destination(s), authorization from the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) may be required. Travel to an embargoed/sanctioned country (e.g.,  Cuba, Iran) may require prior authorization in the form of a license. If travel to an embargoed country is for personal reasons, no University equipment may be taken, and no University business should be conducted without prior authorization. Most activities involving Iran (even remotely) will require a license.

How does export control impact travel outside the United States?

Travel outside the United States can trigger the need for a federally issued license(s), depending on the proposed destination, what you plan on taking with you, the nature of the project associated with the travel, and with whom you work.
 

I'm conducting human subjects research in an international location. What do I need to know?

If you are traveling outside of the United States to conduct human subjects research, you will need to register your travel with the UA Travel Registry. The HSPP requires your travel be registered and approved before any research begins.
