Proposed change to export regulations and foreign student

Read the details in correspondence from UC Berkeley:

Under rules proposed by the Department of Commerce, the operation of export-controlled instrumentation by a foreign national working in in a U.S. university would be considered a "deemed export", even if that person were engaged in fundamental research. As a consequence, a license would be required for each affected foreign national (student, staff or faculty member) and for each export controlled instrument.

Comments are invited by the Department of Commerce on this rule until May 27. To read the original legislation or post a comment, go to

and enter the Key Phrase "Revision and Clarification of Deemed Export Related Regulatory Requirements."
