Deemed Exports

A deemed export is the release of technology or technical data to a foreign national in the U.S. The release is deemed to be an export to the individual's home country, even though the release occurs entirely within the United States. Such releases are subject to export licensing requirements. An unauthorized release to a foreign national within the United States constitutes an export violation. The term release is broadly defined and can occur through visual inspection (including via computer networks), verbal exchanges, or the application outside the U.S. of personal knowledge or technical experience acquired in the United States.
