In limited cases, the Lab will accept research involving background technology above EAR99 . Because non-EAR99 controls represent higher compliance risks, such technology is only accepted subject to an approved technology control plan, or TCP. A TCP will:
- Identify the export controlled technology
- Describe the physical, electronic, and procedural measures necessary to prevent unauthorized access to the export controlled technology. For research activities, this will include a plan to firewall the fundamental research from the restricted research.
- Identify the Responsible Party (normally the PI) who will implement the TCP.
