In February 2016, the EU Outreach in Export Control programme was re-named the EU P2P Export Control Programme.  The new EU P2P Programme now consists of three component parts, these include: dual-use goods, the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), and conventional arms.

The EU programme on dual-use goods aims to improve the effectiveness of export control systems on goods in this category in order to tackle the development of weapons of mass destruction and their related materials and technologies.  At the request of several non-EU countries, the ATT programme supports the strengthening of arms transfer systems within these countries with the overall aim of aligning their systems with the requirements of the ATT.  Finally, the conventional arms programme aims to bolster the continued cooperation between 16 partner countries in the area of arms and export controls.
