Export Compliance: International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Export Administration Regulations (EAR) – Revised Memorandum to Principal Investigators and Upcoming Training Sessions

On February 22, 2011, RCUH introduced a new H-1B/O-1 Export Compliance Certification Form (I-100) in response to the new U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requirement for employers to certify whether a nonimmigrant H-1B or O-1 worker will be performing work that is subject to the U.S. Department of State’s International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) or the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and if an export license will be required.  Please see our revised memorandum on ITAR/EAR Guidelines for H-1B and O-1 Visa Compliance.
