sanction and export controls in higher education

higher education

 

With universities operating in an ever-increasing number of international markets, it is crucial that they understand and comply with international laws and regulations.

Export control and sanctions regimes apply to higher education institutions (HEIs) as well as commercial entities. Failure to comply can be a criminal offence, which may result in significant financial penalties and, in the most serious cases, imprisonment. An investigation can be costly and time consuming, and risks damage to the reputation of both the institution concerned and the wider higher education sector.

What we offer

  • Advice on all aspects of export control and sanctions compliance, including drafting and reviewing universities export control and sanctions policies and procedures
  • Advice to HEIs on export licence applications
  • Advice and support with cross border due diligence
  • Support for universities at all stages of an export related investigation by the regulatory agencies
  • Internal audits and investigations to ensure ongoing export licence compliance
  • Bespoke training and guidance on the latest legislative changes and updates to new licences and other regulatory changes

What happens after a death by suicide?

Student suicide is a major factor with nearly one in four young people experiencing suicidal feelings at least once in their lives and one in 20 trying to take their own life. Although great efforts have been made by the higher education (HE) sector to tackle mental health issues for young people and identify outward signs of distress, the statistics are still troubling.
