License Exception: An authorization described in part 740 of the EAR that allows you to export or re-export, under stated conditions, products subject to the EAR that otherwise would require a license (unless otherwise indicated, these License Exceptions are not applicable to exports under the licensing jurisdiction of agencies other than the Commerce Department).

Foreign Nationals: A person who was born outside the jurisdiction of the United States, who is subject to a foreign government, and who has not been naturalized under U.S. law.

1. The software or technology is export-controlled and
2. The individual is a citizen of one or more of any country embargoed by the U.S.  Please see the BIS website for further information.

*Deemed Export: Any release of technology or source code subject to the EAR to a foreign national within the United States. Such a release is deemed to be an export to the home country or countries of the foreign national. This deemed export rule does not apply to persons lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the United States or to persons who are protected individuals under the Immigration and Naturalization Act - 8 U.S.C. 1324b(a)(3).

Definition of "release" of technology or software. Technology or software is “released” for export through:

i.   Visual inspection by foreign nationals of U.S.-origin equipment and facilities;
ii.  Oral exchanges of information in the United States or abroad; or
