Slepak Principles Act - Declares it is the purpose of this Act to create principles, similar to those proposed by Vladamir Slepak (a founding member of the Moscow Helsinki Monitoring Group) governing the conduct of industrial cooperation projects of U.S. nationals in the Soviet Union and the Baltic States.

Expresses the sense of the Congress that U.S. nationals engaged in such projects should adhere to the Slepak Principles and thus: (1) provide no assistance for the Soviet military; (2) suspend the use of goods produced by forced labor; (3) seek the protection of human rights as it relates to Soviet employee rights; (4) decline to participate in any project if it uses a structure used for religious activities; (5) pose no danger to Soviet employees; (6) refuse to extend untied loans to the Soviet Union; and (7) strive to use business enterprises that are not controlled by the Soviet Union. Sets forth specified registration and reporting requirements.

Declares that U.S. agencies may intercede with a foreign government or foreign national regarding export marketing activity on behalf of a U.S. national if such national adheres to the Slepak Principles.
