If the wafer meets the criteria of § 734.9(e)(1) and the wafer maker has “knowledge” that a footnote 1 designated entity is a party to the transaction involving the finished integrated circuit or higher-level assembly incorporating such wafer, then a license is required to export from abroad the wafer to the integrated circuit manufacturer. Either the wafer maker or the integrated circuit manufacturer may apply for the license, see Q17 through Q21 below.
