Export License Review and Approval Policy

Export Control Administrators are responsible for making export licensure determinations on items being sent or hand-carried abroad, as well as on individuals and entities with which the university works, in consultation with the Office of the Vice Provost for Research (“OVPR”). All proposed license applications must be submitted to and reviewed and approved by OVPR. Additionally, OVPR must be contacted to review and approve ANY export (transmission, shipment, hand carry) of Harvard-owned or controlled property, services or export-controlled information when:
• The export is to Iran, Cuba, Syria, North Korea, or the Crimea Region of the Ukraine1, or
• The export involves a Restricted Party on a U.S. Government export or trade sanctions list.
