Deemed Export Compliance Attestation (DECA)


The Deemed Export Compliance Attestation (DECA) provides information that helps determine if an export control license is required before an H-1B Visa beneficiary accesses certain data, technology, software or material.

Each Attestation must be signed by the beneficiary’s supervisor, the sponsoring department Chair, and the applicable Dean/Chancellor, or Dean’s Office Research Representative.

The completed signed Attestation must be submitted to exports@uw.edu as an attachment.

Use the Export Control Memorandum to help fill out this DECA form.
