The Export Control Organisation (ECO) has amended Schedule 2 of the Export Control Order 2008.
The new order, The Export Control (Amendment) (No.3) Order 2017 (S.I. 2017 No.697), comes into force on 13 July 2017.
The amending Order makes a small number of changes to Schedule 2 to the main Order, which lists the military goods, software and technology subject to export controls.
These changes mainly reflect amendments made to the EU Common Military List following agreement to amend controls in the export control regime known as the Wassenaar Arrangement. The changes need to be incorporated into UK control lists to reflect the UK commitment to the international non-proliferation regime.
0.1 Key amendments
- several changes to the definitions (see the entries for airship, laser, lighter-than-air vehicles, pyrotechnics and software).
- changes relating to ML1, ML8 and ML10
A separate notice will be issued to give details of any associated changes required to open general export licences.
0.2 Action for exporters
Exporters should familiarise themselves with the changes to the scope of the controls following these amendments to the order and schedule.
