Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the Export of Goods, Transfer of Technology and Provision of Technical Assistance (Control) Order 2003 (“the 2003 Order”), the Trade in Goods (Control) Order 2003 (`the Trade Order') and the Trade in Controlled Goods (Embargoed Destinations) Order 2004 (“the 2004 Order”).

Articles 2 and 7 remove references to the address of the Export Control Organisation from the 2003 Order, the Trade Order and the 2004 Order.

Article 3 substitutes a new Schedule 1 to the 2003 Order.

The substitute Schedule makes a number of amendments as a consequence of changes to the control list of the Wassenaar Arrangement, an international non-proliferation regime, including deleting `the General Technology Note', amending the definition of ‘riot control agents’ and amending control entries ML22 (Technology), ML7 (Chemical or biological agents) and ML11 (Electronic equipment).

Other amendments include a new definition for `lighter than air vehicles' and minor amendments to the control entries in ML4 (Bombs, Torpedoes etc), ML6 (Ground Vehicles), ML7 (Chemical or biological agents), ML9 (Vessels), ML 10 (Aircraft), ML13 (Military Helmets), ML21 (Software), PL 5001 (Security and para-military goods) and PL8001 (Explosive related goods and technology).

Article 4 provides a General Technology Note to Schedule 2 (Prohibited Dual-use goods, software and technology) to the 2003 Order. Articles 5 and 6 makes consequential amendments to that Schedule. Article 6 also removes references to Iraq.

A full regulatory impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as it has a minimal impact on the costs of business.
