"Knowledge" as defined by the U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry & Security, Export Administration Regulations:

Knowledge of a circumstance (the term may be a variant, such as "know", "reason to know", or "reason to believe") includes not only the positive knowledge that the circumstance exist or is substantially certain to occur, but also an awareness of a high probability of its existence or future occurrence. Such awareness is inferred from evidence of the conscious disregard of facts known to a person and is also inferred from a person's willful avoidance of facts.


Ignorance is Impossible When Knowledge is Established by Law

Reasonable Care could be defined as the degree of documented care and due diligence that any trained person would exercise in the normal course of business-to-business dealings. Any exporter or importer that demonstrates, through documented policies, procedures and actions, that Reasonable Care has been taken may be in a strong position to avoid future fines, penalties, seizures and/or forfeitures by U.S. Customs and other government agencies.

 

 

A Deemed Export is any release of technology or source code subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to a foreign national in the United States. Such release is deemed to be an export to the home country or countries of the foreign national. Note that the release of any item to any party with knowledge a violation is about to occur is prohibited by 15 CFR Subsection 734.2(b)(2)(ii) EAR and 22 CFR Subsection 127.1 International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).

The transfer of anything to a "FOREIGN PERSON" or a foreign destination by any means, anywhere, anytime, or a transfer to a "U.S. PERSON" with knowledge that the item will be further transferred to a "FOREIGN PERSON" is considered a Deemed Export.

For example, if a design drawing containing controlled technology is received by a Foreign National within the U.S., or the technical data is exported from the U.S. by verbal, fax, email or hand-carried means, a deemed export has taken place and may require an export license.
