1st Meeting of the Network for Export Control Personnel at Universities in the Kinki District held

On December 16, 2016, the 1st Meeting of the Network for Export Control Personnel at Universities in the Kinki District was held at Kansai University's Takatsuki Muse Campus. This meeting was attended by 37 safety and export control personnel from 18 national, public, and private universities in the Kinki District.

This network is a consortium consisting of personnel from 20 national, public, and private universities in the Kinki District, and it is run by a group of organizing universities (Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto University, Kobe University, and Osaka University) with the aim of mutual interaction, information exchange, and support.

This meeting was also attended by members of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, with a group discussion held after the lectures listed below.


"On Security Export Control - Hopes for a University-Export Control Network"
Director ABE, Security Export Inspection Office, METI

"To Universities who will Begin Export Control"
Specially Appointed Professor NAKATA (Osaka University)

"Introduction to the Export Control Personnel Network in the Kanagawa District"
Export Control Manager YAMANOUCHI (Research Initiatives and Promotion Organization, Yokohama National University)

"When is Export Control Necessary? Case Introductions and Process Flow"
Special Mission Professor FUJIMOTO (Kobe University)


During the lectures, Director ABE gave an explanation about the Subcommittee of Security Export Control Policy in the Industrial Structure Council Trade Committee, which is currently under discussion. Afterwards, Director ABE provided attendees with information on recent events. Specially Appointed Professor NAKATA spoke about specifics on the formation of export control structure and Special Mission Professor FUJIMOTO spoke on the specifics of the export control structure at Kobe University, each of which will serve as great examples for universities who will formulate their own export control structures in the future.

In the group discussion session, attendees formed three groups and held discussions on "Acceptance of International Students," "Acceptance of Researchers from Universities on the End Users List," and "Export of Cargo," all of which showed the importance of export control.

This meeting saw particular momentum for universities who will begin export control in the immediate future, making the role played by this network even more important moving forward.

This network aims to be a flexible network with no burdens on regulations or attendees, with plans to hold meetings twice a year which will include lectures, case introductions, and study sessions for export control personnel.
