Stanford University

Restricted Party Screening (RPS) Tool

Stanford is responsible for:


  • ensuring that we do not unlawfully engage with persons or organizations who may jeopardize compliance with U.S. export controls and trade sanctions regulations, and
  • documenting our due diligence when complying with those regulations.

A U.S. Government export license may be required before proceeding with a collaboration, appointment, or financial transaction when persons or organizations are identified on a U.S. Government Restricted Party List.  Additionally, Restricted Party Screening is used to identify persons and organizations that may present an elevated risk of undue foreign influence.
