How to Report Possible Violations

“Princeton community members working with export-controlled equipment or technical data assume responsibility for conducting their activities in compliance with U.S. export control laws and regulations, as well as Princeton University policies. 

Concerns related to the violation of export control regulations must be reported to the institution for review and investigation.  They may be reported in one or more of the following ways:

  • Raise the concern with a supervisor.  Supervisors, managers, or a department chair can provide guidance regarding the concern. 
  • Raise the concern with Export Controls.  Export Controls has the responsibility to review and investigate all non-compliant activities related to export control regulations.  The University community may submit a concern directly to the Assistant Director
    • by phone (609-258-3819),
    • email (exports@princeton.edu),
    • or by mail to Assistant Director, Export Controls, PO Box 36, Princeton, NJ  08544-0036.
  • Submit a report to the Princeton University Hotline.  Members of the University community may submit an anonymous report via EthicsPoint  or by phone (1-866-478-9804.)

In accordance with Princeton University’s “Reporting Potentially Illegal Activity” policy, members of the University community who engage in illegal activity are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment or student status, in addition to possible criminal prosecution.
