United States persons are prohibited by the federal government from engaging in activities or financial transactions with individuals or entities that have been determined to be acting contrary to the interests of the United States. These are known as “restricted parties.”
To determine if the above applies to your situation, ORPA can conduct a Restricted Party Screening.
Safeguarding United States Interests
There are tens of thousands of parties that may appear on various United States government lists, including universities or research institutions, as well as individuals. These parties present a greater risk of diversion for weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programs, terrorism, or other activities contrary to United States national security and foreign policy interests.
Restricted Party Screenings seek to identify parties that may be prohibited from receiving some or all items subject to export control regulations, unless the exporter secures a license. Screenings of known contacts against these lists should also be conducted prior to international travel. Depending on the list within which it was found, a match indicates that there is:
- A strict export prohibition
- A specific license requirement
- The presence of a "red flag"
Request a Screening
A screening takes just minutes and can be performed by your ORPA administrator. To get started, simply provide the names of entities and individuals in foreign countries, or those visiting Princeton, with whom you intend to interact. ORPA will notify you if any of the parties are subject to restrictions.
