US export controls on LLMs/GPT/GenAI

I’m configuring the country exclude list for my application that would allow/deny service to users based on their location. The application is hosted on a server based in the US.

Aside from countries that are banned from US exports generally, such as Cuba, Iran, North Korea, and Syria, are there any US export controls on GPT that prohibit an application that utilizes OpenAI API from selling its services in other countries?

What about countries that have banned GPT – is it the responsibility of the application to refuse service to those countries (e.g., Italy, China, Russia)?
