Each year the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) reviews thousands of export license applications for dual use and less-sensitive military items. BIS also adjudicates many deemed export license applications - for situations in which sharing technical data with a foreign national is "deemed" to constitute an export to that foreign national's home country. Below are some of the licensing-related analyses produced by The Office of Technology Evaluation (OTE), including license applications for deemed exports and BIS license utilization.
