EU Commission report on dual-use export control regime

The EU Commission has published a report to the European Parliament and the EU Council on the EU’s export control regime for dual-use goods (link here). The report states that the number of goods subject to controls increased in 2015, particularly those relating to aerospace and propulsion, that dual-use goods now comprise around 20% of total EU exports, and that the majority of dual-use exports outside of the EU are to E001 countries benefitting from a general authorisation, particularly the USA.

The report also notes the ongoing work of the Dual-Use Coordination Group, which brings together experts from the Commission and EU Member States to examine issues relating to the export control regime, including its support for the development of common guidelines for EU-wide standards for the Internal Compliance Programme and enhancing cooperation between customs and export control authorities.
