Violations of the Export Control regulations are severe and can be imposed against both the individual as well as Florida Atlantic University (FAU). Such penalties include significant monetary fines and lengthy prison sentences. FAU personnel may not transfer any items, materials, or technical data contrary to U.S. Export Control laws or FAU’s policies.
Violations under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), can bring civil penalties of $10,000 to $120,000 per violation. Violations under the EAR may also include criminal penalties of $50,000 to $1,000,000 per violation as well as up to 10 years imprisonment.
Violations under the International Trafficking in Arms Regulations (ITAR), may bring civil penalties of $500,000 per violation. Violations under the ITAR may also include criminal penalties of $1,000,000 per violation as well as up to 20 years imprisonment.
Violators may also be subject to denial of their export privileges. A denial of export privileges prohibits a person from participating in any way in any transaction subject to the EAR. Furthermore, it is unlawful for other businesses and individuals to participate in any way in an export transaction subject to the EAR with a denied person.
