817_t.jpg

Export compliance is an important issue at Mississippi State and other major research universities around the country.

Starting this week, MSU faculty and staff working on or managing contracts that involve Export Administrations Regulations (EAR) and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) will have the opportunity to learn more about export compliance issues thanks to a training series developed by the land-grant institution's Office of Research Security.

"The penalties for non-compliance of export regulations are severe, and they are levied against employees performing the work, as well as the institution," ORS Director Neil Lewis said.

The series of seven presentations and interactive sessions are designed to provide a basic working knowledge of the export control laws and regulations. All personnel, principal investigators, business managers, contracts and grants personnel and anyone who is working on an export controlled project needs to know and understand the requirements.

The first seminar, titled "Export Control and ITAR Series Kick-off and Basics," will be held Wednesday, Oct. 24 from 3-4 p.m. in Colvard Student Union's Fowlkes Auditorium.

Please register to attend this session at http://www.tfaforms.com/252372.
