Review - Dual Use Regulation

    June 2009

    On 29 May 2009 the long awaited recast EU dual-use Regulation was published in the Official Journal of the European Union. The main changes to the current system are the introduction of brokering and transit controls. Member States will also be required to place a stronger emphasis on a company's internal compliance with export control rules when reviewing an application for a global export authorisation. The rules on export and intra-Community transfer of dual-use goods remain, however, virtually unchanged.
