Sharing Technical Information or Software

When thinking of exports, most people think about international shipments. However, export control regulations also govern the release of export controlled technology, technical information, or software source code to non-U.S. persons within the United States. Technology or source code may be “released" to a non-U.S. person through:

  • Visual inspection of United States-origin equipment and facilities
  • Oral exchanges of information in the United States or abroad
  • Applying personal knowledge or technical experience acquired in the United States or abroad
