We provide a dynamic platform for the entire sector; facilitating discussion, collaboration, and advocacy.

For the first time a national body of HE export control practitioners will exist.

This will enable an informed, consistent and best practice approach to training and compliance across the whole sector. Although each institution will need take and rely on its own advice, HEECA will provide an expert forum and leverage the collective expertise in HE. 

HEECA will also work with the recently launched Universities UK Export Control Group (ECG), which provides a forum for direct discussion between HE practitioners and academics and regulators, funders and CPNI. HEECA will inform and influence the agenda for ECG discussions.

Membership is free and offers many benefits

  • Access to guidance on export control compliance
  • Access to HEECA events, including the Annual Conference
  • Updates and commentary on regulatory changes
  • Opportunities to engage with HM Government on export control policy and guidance
