Violations of import and export laws carry monetary and/or criminal penalties even if the purpose is educational. For an institution like Ross University School of Medicine that is an international medical school, the implications of violating import and export laws would cause detriment to the accreditation of the institution, therefore impact licensing and credentialing of medical students to practice medicine in the U.S. The U.S. import and export restrictions and laws that affect Ross University's business overseas can be categorized as follows: economic sanctions, export controls, antiterrorism, and corrupt practices.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 22, 2019, 3:44 am ad1c9bdddf

These countries include: Burma (Myanmar), the Balkans (Serbia), Cote d'Ivoire, North Korea, Cuba, Liberia, Iran, Syria, Sudan, and Zimbabwe (George Washington University, 2006). Since Ross University is currently not doing business in either one of these countries, there is not impact. However, Ross University does plan to expand its institution to Brazil, Japan, and United Kingdom. U.S. economic sanctions are generally known as embargoes, which prohibit most imports, exports and transactions with certain countries.

This particular import and export law will not affect Ross University's business operations.
