Intel Export Compliance
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. Intel hardware and software is marketed and distributed worldwide, under various export authorizations. This means that it could potentially be exported to all countries except those that are restricted under US or local law. For Intel export classification information, please see the Product Search section above. For more information, please consult with your legal counsel.
Many countries have laws potentially affecting the export or use of encryption; however, these laws may or may not apply to mass-market software products. All exporters must observe the specific licensing processes and policies of those countries. You should consult with your legal counsel for clarification of specific laws.
Many Intel® microprocessors meet the technical specifications set forth under §744.17(a) of the US Export Administration Regulations: (a) 5 GFLOPS or more of processing speed; and (b) an arithmetic logic unit with an access width of 32 bit or more. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm if a specific processor SKU meets the technical specifications listed in EAR 744.17(a).
Where can I find more information about the Adjusted Peak Performance (APP) value of Intel® microprocessors?
APP calculations are based on the formula published in the United States Department of Commerce Export Administration Regulations 71 CFR 20876, and are stated in Weighted Teraflops (WT). For more information on APP, please go to https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005755/processors.html.
