Receipt of Export-Controlled Information
As more funding sources become aware of the potential for export control issues to arise in a research project, they may attempt to impose export control restrictions on the research they are funding. This may be unacceptable to Princeton University if such restrictions destroy the fundamental research exclusion. In order to preserve the fundamental research exclusion, it is preferable that no export-controlled information be necessary for a research project to go forward, but if it is, Princeton University requires that the party providing the information be responsible for identifying the information as export-controlled. Princeton University will then determine what, if any, controls are required to protect the information. If the researcher or administrator has reason to believe that information to be received is export-controlled information, it is imperative that the researcher contact ORPA can then clarify whether there is cause for concern for export-control purposes and determine whether the researcher is able to receive the information before it is shared with the researcher.
