Export Control Penalties
Violations of export control laws have serious consequences for both the individual and the institution. The penalties vary depending on the circumstances (whether it was a "knowing" or "willful" violation), but the penalties for even lesser violations can include jail time and/or fines.
Please note that export control violations can also be assigned to the individual rather than the university. If you violate export control laws, there's a very good chance that you, as an individual, could face fines and jail time.
