The modification of dual-use goods list

In this issue:

Export controls: List of dual-use goods updated by EU Commission

The update entered into force on 31 December 2019 and brings the list of dual-use products in line with the decisions taken under the international export control agreement in 2018.

New products were added to the export control list, such as:

  • software designed to restore operation of microcomputers/microprocessors after Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) or Electrostatic Discharge disruption (ESD) (3D005);
  • masks and reticles designed for optical sensors (6B002);
  • air-launch platforms for space launch vehicles (9A004g);
  • other discrete microwave transistors (3A001b3f);
  • signal generators with specified 'Radio Frequency modulation bandwidths’ (3A002d5).

Also, certain amendments were brought on product definition and control entry:

  • Amendment to control entry for hydrophones operating over 1000 m (6A001a2a6);
  • Amendment to control entry for multi-layer mask control (3B001h);
  • Amendment to control entry for gear machine tool, including a cascaded structure for the control criteria (2B003);
  • Deletion of entry for technology for diffusion bonding for gas turbine engine components (9E003a7).

What we recommend?

If you carry out activities in the field of aviation/aerospace, automotive, electronics or IT, we recommend you to asses the impact on the new changes on your product classifications from an export control perspective.
