Regulatory Compliance

Human Subjects Research

The CUNY Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) is responsible for the protection of the rights and welfare of human subjects in research projects conducted at CUNY or by CUNY faculty, staff and students and RF CUNY staff. The program provides oversight, administrative support and educational training to ensure that CUNY research complies with federal and State regulations, University policy and the highest ethical standards.

All human subjects' research must be approved by the IRB before the data collection can start. PIs are responsible for submitting applications with enough lead time.

The following items should be considered:

  1. Is the proposed project human subject's research?

  2. Is the proposed project Exempt/Expedited/Full Review?

  3. All PIs should do the Human subjects research training in Citi program.

  4. All applications are submitted through Ideate

Export Control

When  traveling  abroad,  taking certain items,  providing  certain  services  or  meeting  with certain  people can present export  control problems  for  CUNY  faculty,  staff,  students  and postdoctoral  scholars  (“CUNY affiliates”).

Travel to most countries does not present an export control problem. Travel to some countries may present a problem  that is  easily  addressed,  provided  we  create and  maintain  records  that  show we found the  travel to  be exempt  from  the  regulations.  But  when  an  export  control license  is required for  travel,  it  is  crucial  that  we  obtain  it  prior  to  the  trip.  Violations  of  the  export control laws carry severe civil and criminal penalties. Please review CUNY policies regarding Export Control when travel abroad.

Export Control Regulations

At CUNY, we are committed to maintaining an open teaching and research environment that supports the global benefit of our academic and research endeavors. At the same time, we remain equally committed to complying with Export Control regulations pertaining to the conduct of our research and the dissemination of its products.
