  • Vanderbilt must state whether or not an H-1B or O-1 employee is required to obtain an export license. 
  • Departments must undertake an export license analysis with VEC. 
  • Any H-1B or O-1 Packets submitted to VISIT must include a completed EC Attestation form before the immigration petition can be filed with USCIS.

After the Deemed Export Questionnaire is Completed
  • If all answers are “NO,” the department should submit the questionnaire to VEC; complete the EC Certification form in the Immigration Packet; and submit the EC Certification form to VISIT.
  • If any answer is YES,” the department should submit the questionnaire to VEC. Once VEC has reviewed the EC Questionnaire they will inform the department of how to respond to the EC Certification form question. VEC will also inform VISIT of the required response.
  • Once VISIT has the EC Certification form from the department and confirmation from VEC, the completed H-1B or O-1 petition will be sent to USCIS.
  • If VISIT receives an immigration packet with an incomplete EC Certification page we will begin work on the packet but will not file any documents with USCIS until the EC Certification form is received.
  • VISIT will notify department administrator of the EC Certification deficiency.
  • VEC will work with the department to obtain the export control license while the H-1B or O-1 filing is being processed by USCIS.
  • The employee can begin work at Vanderbilt but cannot work with the materials, equipment or area where the export control license is required.
