If you are unsure whether export controls may apply to your research and innovation project, you can speak to your usual Research Services contact (usually the RDM for your area) who will direct your query to the appropriate person. They may ask for further information on the project in order to fully identify the risks.

There is a checklist that staff can complete to help assess whether export controls may be applicable and staff can also use the Export Control Joint Unit (ECJU) Goods Checker to determine if their technology is on the consolidated list of strategic military or dual-use items that require export control authorisation.



We will be running a series of training sessions during 2024 to the most relevant Schools across the University to provide an introduction to export controls and information on what researchers will need to do.

We also have access to online training through the Higher Education Export Control Association (HEECA).  To register for the training, please email for access.
