Contractor Compliance with Deemed Export Controls
The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2000 requires that between 2000 and 2007. the President shall submit to Congress and annual report to include a review that examines export control issues by the Offices of Inspector General (OIGs) of the Departments of Energy, Commerce, State, and Defense. For 2004, the OIGs for these agencies and the Department of Homeland Security and the Central Intelligence Agency reviewed compliance by contractors and universities with deemed export controls for access to unclassified technologies. Release to a foreign national of technology or software that is subject to the Export Administration Regulations is "deemed to be an export" to the home country of the foreign national. Release includes visual access by foreign nationals to United States-origin equipment and facilities and oral exchange of information.
