Office of Regulatory
Compliance: Export Control
Form I-129, the form that ISSS staff members
complete when submitting any type of H1B petition to the U.S. Citizenship and
Immigration Service (USCIS), includes a Certification
Regarding the Release of Controlled Technology or Technical Data to Foreign
Persons in the United States. To
complete this certification, the employer must attest that they have reviewed
the applicable Export Control regulations and determined that foreign worker
will or will not have access to technology and technical data for which an
export license is required, and, if a license is required, that the foreign
worker will not have access until the necessary license or other authorization
has been obtained.
Effective November 15, 2016, the “Deemed Export License
Worksheet” has been replaced with an online process. CU Denver | Anschutz now uses
an online software package called Visual Compliance; the deemed export review
will be conducted via the “Deemed and Hand Carried” module component of Visual
Compliance. With this change, you will no longer need to complete the paper
based license worksheet. Instead, you will enter and upload information about
the prospective employee via an online form. Upon completion of the form, the
request will be routed based on a workflow. Results will be provided directly
to the ISSS office, so this process will cut down on some emails and will
The online worksheet is more robust than the current
form, and may take additional time to complete if you need to gather specific
information. The questions are intended to help ensure compliance with export
control/deemed export governmental regulations and will provide a more
comprehensive summary of activities for incoming international employees.
