Instructions for International User Shipments
If, at the end of your experiment, you plan to ship samples, equipment or other scientific items from SLAC to a location outside of the U.S., please complete a Power of Attorney for Individual accounts or Group accounts and review the terms and conditions set forth below.
NOTE: All EXPORTS MUST BE APPROVED BY STANFORD. DELAYS IN PROVIDING THIS INFORMATION WILL DELAY YOUR SHIPMENT. For more information on user exports, macromolecular crystallography users should contact Lisa Dunn; other xray/vuv users should contact Cathy Knotts.
By providing this information, you are certifying your concurrence with these Terms and Conditions
the user certifies that information resulting from use of SLAC User facilities
will not be used to support, directly or indirectly, the design, development,
production, stockpiling or use of a nuclear explosive device, chemical or
biological weapons, or missiles;
the user understands that SLAC will only return materials, samples and other
items used in the conduct of SLAC User research - individuals will be responsible
for the return of all other items;
the user assumes responsibility for the handling and use of any proprietary
export controlled items or technical data brought to or generated at SLAC while
those items or technical data are on SLAC premises;
the user understands that SLAC is only serving as the international user's
agent in the return of research materials to a location outside of the US and
that return shipment is a "routed export transaction" for the purposes of the
Export Administration Regulations (EAR). Under a routed export transaction, the
exporter (SLAC) obtains a written authorization from the "foreign principal
party in interest" (the international user) usually in the form of a Power of
Attorney (Individual / Group) whereby the international user assumes responsibility for determining
(with the help of SLAC/Stanford) licensing requirements and obtaining an export
license if necessary.
(Note: Once the Power of Attorney has been signed it will remain in
effect until revoked by user or SLAC. We recommend that the
Spokesperson/PI for a group signs the power of attorney and designates
a representative (lead contact) who will coordinate your shipment.
