Working with a student who has ATAS clearance

The requirement of ATAS clearance for that project must be taken as a flag that it may fall under export controls and may require an export licence. You should self-assess the project. Additionally you need to think about who is involved in this project and whether they are based in a key country

If the project involves only collaborators or funders affiliated to UK entities and aspects of the projects are controlled

  • You can proceed with the project as normal as there is no export taking place.
  • You should inform them that the information you will be handing them is controlled. Please use the following statements.

If the project involves collaborators or funders affiliated to non-UK entities and aspects of the project are controlled

  • Download form 5, complete it and email to the ECC team
  • The controlled data must not leave the UK borders until clearance. This means that you must not share any controlled data with your collaborators or funders until clearance (confirmation that a licence is not required or that a licence has been granted) for your project is provided. This may take up to 8 weeks

If your collaborators or funders are based in a key country and you self-assessed the project as not-controlled

  • Download form 4, complete it and email to the ECC team
  • Do not share any data with your collaborators or funders until clearance (confirmation that a licence is not required or that a licence has been granted) for your project is provided

If your collaborators or funders are not based in a key country and the project is not controlled

  • You can proceed with the project as normal as there is no controlled export taking place

Please be aware that the PI is responsible for self-assessment of the project, this should be undertaken annually or whenever any aspect of the project changes.
