On February 20, 2011 it will be mandatory for petitioners seeking H-1B, H-1B1, L-1 or O-1A visas for Nonimmigrant Workers to certify they have reviewed US export control regulations and determine if export authorization is required, prior to submitting Form I-129.

The revision to Part 6 of the I-129 form does not modify or change the export compliance requirements, which have long been in place under the EAR and ITAR, but now forces organizations to certify understanding of these requirements and that appropriate actions will be taken to ensure compliance.
