EU_Button_IconThe European Commission adopted on 12 October 2015 a proposal to update the EU list of dual-use items taking into account the latest scientific, technological, industrial and commercial developments. The new control list implements over 100 amendments to the controls made by the multilateral regimes in 2014, essentially in the WA and MTCR regimes. In particular, the changes relate to the control of machine tools, avionics technology, aircraft wing-folding systems, spacecraft equipment and civil UAVs, as well as the removal from control of certain encrypted information security products. This update will enter into force when and only if the European Parliament and the Council do not express objections. See here for additional information.
