EU: Dual-use exports

This is for people with an interest in technologies and matters military. The European Union has published a recast Regulation setting up a Community regime for the control of exports, transfer, brokering and transit of dual-use items.

Dual-use items refer to items, including software and technology, which can be used for both civil and military purposes, including goods which can be used for both non-explosive uses and assisting in any way in the manufacture of nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices;

Officially it is called Council Regulation (EC) No 428/2009 of 5 May 2009 setting up a Community regime for the control of exports, transfer, brokering and transit of dual-use items (Recast), and it was published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) 29.5.2009 L 134/1.



With annexes it runs to 269 pages.
