The European Commission has adopted its annual Delegated Regulation that updates the EU dual-use export control list and brings it in line with the decision taken within the framework of the international nonproliferation regimes and export control arrangements. In summary, the majority of the changes, such as the updates of the control of laser measuring systems and a new control for electronic equipment that can perform high-speed analogue-to-digital conversions, derive from the Wassenaar Agreement. The Wassenaar Agreement has also triggered structural changes within information security, including the removal of several controls, those on aerospace and missile seals, some hydraulic fluids and underwater cameras.
Moreover, a new Nuclear Suppliers Group control for laser measuring systems had been added in Category 2 as a result of the Wassenaar Arrangement changes. The Commission Delegated Regulation will enter into force upon its publication two months after adoption.
