Proposal Dual Use Regulation published
The latest proposal for a reform of the European Dual Use Regulation was officially published on 28 September. The proposal can be found under number COM(2016)616 final.
The most important proposed changes relate to:
- the definition of Dual Use Items. That definition is of course important for determining which goods require an export license and which do not.
- the definition of the word “Exporter”. That definition is important for establishing who must obtain and export license, and which country is compentent to decide on the issuance of the license.
- the rules about brokering Dual Use goods and rules for transit of Dual Use items
- harmonisation of Catch-All provisions in order to achieve a more uniform uniform policy.
