Export and Sanctions Compliance: Breathing Life Into Your Policies

Wednesday, October 5, 2016 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

You’re on top of the rules, and know where to look for regulatory updates. Keeping up with regulatory changes from the Departments of State, Commerce, and Treasury as well as related changes to the FAR and DFARS is a complex task even for compliance professionals. But it is only the first step in ensuring institutional compliance with these rules. Even once research administrators and compliance professionals understand the underlying requirements and regulations, there is still the matter of how controls can be effectively implemented (and updated) in the research setting. Communicating requirements to the right parties, teaching them their compliance roles, and engaging them as active supporters of compliance objectives is challenging. Turning paper policies into a program that delivers results requires careful planning. A well thought out compliance strategy in a research setting must recognize the unique challenges of an open and dispersed environment.

This webinar will focus on program implementation techniques to promote regulatory compliance while being sensitive of the needs of the research institution and individual investigators. Specific topics will include: critical policies and procedures, garnering and allocating resources, coordinating with other units on campus, effective training, screening, noncompliance procedures, and implementing and monitoring the program.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn about institutional policies and procedures that are needed in the research setting.

  2. Understand strategies for implementing controls in a manner that works in academia and other research settings.

  3. Understand post approval monitoring in the export and sanctions compliance realm.
