restrictions on the exchange of specific technologies. Remember, an export can occur through a variety
of means, including oral communications, written documentation, computer software, and visual inspection
of equipment or facilities. An export can also occur even if the transfer of information or technology
(by the same oral, written, or visual means) takes place within NPS. This is known as a deemed export.
To ensure that technical data, software, and/or commodities are properly protected,
you must review these areas and resolve any export control concerns before the visit. These visits and
assignments must be conducted in a manner consistent with U.S., DOD, Dept. of Navy, and NPS security
policies, requirements, and objectives including export control laws and regulations.
