United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has changed the I-129 Petition for Nonimmigrant Workers. This affects all H-1B, H-1B1 Chile/Singapore, L-1 and O-1A petitioners. Companies must certify compliance with the deemed export laws governing the release of controlled technology or technical data to foreign persons in Part 6 of the new form, which becomes mandatory on December 23, 2010.

The new I-129 form requires companies to certify that:

1. A license is not required from the U.S. Department of Commerce or the U.S. Department of State to release such technology or technical data to the foreign person; or

2. A license is required from the U.S. Department of Commerce and/or the U.S. Department of State to release such technology or technical data to the beneficiary and the petitioner will prevent access to the controlled technology or technical data by the beneficiary until and unless the petitioner has received the required license or other authorization to release it to the beneficiary.
