COUNCIL REGULATION (EU) No 509/2012

of 15 June 2012

amending Regulation (EU) No 36/2012 concerning restrictive measures in view of the situation in Syria

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 215 thereof,

Having regard to Council Decision 2011/782/CFSP of 1 December 2011 concerning restrictive measures against Syria (1),

Having regard to the joint proposal from the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and the European Commission,

Whereas:

(1)

On 18 January 2012, the Council adopted Regulation (EU) No 36/2012 (2) with a view to giving effect to most of the measures provided for in Decision 2011/782/CFSP.

(2)

In view of the continued brutal repression and violation of human rights by the Government of Syria, Council Decision 2012/206/CFSP (3), amending Decision 2011/782/CFSP, provides for additional measures, namely a prohibition or prior authorisation requirement on the sale, supply, transfer or export of goods and technology which might be used for internal repression, and a ban on exports of luxury goods to Syria.

(3)

Those measures fall within the scope of the Treaty and regulatory action at the level of the Union is therefore necessary in order to implement them, in particular with a view to ensuring their uniform application by economic operators in all Member States.

(4)

Therefore, Regulation (EU) No 36/2012 should be amended to give effect to the new measures,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

(b)

to participate, knowingly and intentionally, in activities the object or effect of which is to circumvent the prohibitions referred to in point (a).

2.   By way of derogation from paragraph 1, the competent authorities in the Member States, as identified on the websites listed in Annex III, may grant, under such terms and conditions as they deem appropriate, an authorisation for a transaction in relation to equipment, goods or technology as listed in Annex IA, provided that the equipment, goods or technology are for food, agricultural, medical or other humanitarian purposes.

PART 1

Introductory Notes

1.

This Part comprises goods, software and technology listed in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 428/2009 (1).

2.

Unless otherwise stated, the reference numbers used in the column below entitled “No” refer to the control list number and the column below entitled “Description” refers to the control descriptions of dual-use items set out in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 428/2009.

3.

Definitions of terms between ‘single quotation marks’ are given in a technical note to the relevant item.

4.

Definitions of terms between “double quotation marks” can be found in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 428/2009.

General Notes

1.

The object of the controls contained in this Annex should not be defeated by the export of any non-controlled goods (including plant) containing one or more controlled components when the controlled component or components is/are the principal element of the goods and can feasibly be removed or used for other purposes.

NB:

In judging whether the controlled component or components is/are to be considered the principal element, it is necessary to weigh the factors of quantity, value and technological know-how involved and other special circumstances which might establish the controlled component or components as the principal element of the goods being procured.

2.

The items specified in this Annex include both new and used goods.

General Technology Note (GTN)

(To be read in conjunction with Section B of this Part)

1.

The sale, supply, transfer or export of “technology” which is “required” for the “development”, “production” or “use” of goods the sale, supply, transfer or export of which is controlled in Sections A, B, C and D of this Part, is controlled in accordance with the provisions of Section E.

2.

The “technology”“required” for the “development”, “production” or “use” of goods under control remains under control even when it is applicable to non-controlled goods.

3.

Controls do not apply to that “technology” which is the minimum necessary for the installation, operation, maintenance (checking) and repair of those goods which are not controlled or the export of which has been authorised in accordance with this Regulation.

4.

Controls on “technology” transfer do not apply to information “in the public domain”, to “basic scientific research” or to the minimum necessary information for patent applications.

General Notes

1.

The object of the controls contained in this Annex should not be defeated by the export of any non-controlled goods (including plant) containing one or more controlled components when the controlled component or components is/are the principal element of the goods and can feasibly be removed or used for other purposes.

NB:

In judging whether the controlled component or components is/are to be considered the principal element, it is necessary to weigh the factors of quantity, value and technological know-how involved and other special circumstances which might establish the controlled component or components as the principal element of the goods being procured.

2.

The items specified in this Annex include both new and used goods.

2.

The “technology”“required” for the “development”, “production” or “use” of goods under control remains under control even when it is applicable to non-controlled goods.

3.

Controls do not apply to that “technology” which is the minimum necessary for the installation, operation, maintenance (checking) and repair of those goods which are not controlled or the export of which has been authorised in accordance with this Regulation.

Introductory Notes

1.

Unless otherwise stated, reference numbers used in the column below entitled “Description” refer to the descriptions of dual-use items set out in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 428/2009.

2.

A reference number in the column below entitled “Related item from Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 428/2009” means that the characteristics of the item described in the “Description” column lie outside the parameters set out in the description of the dual-use entry referred to.

3.

Definitions of terms between ‘single quotation marks’ are given in a technical note to the relevant item.

4.

Definitions of terms between “double quotation marks” can be found in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 428/2009.

General Notes

1.

The object of the controls contained in this Annex should not be defeated by the export of any non-controlled goods (including plant) containing one or more controlled components when the controlled component or components is/are the principal element of the goods and can feasibly be removed or used for other purposes.

NB:

In judging whether the controlled component or components is/are to be considered the principal element, it is necessary to weigh the factors of quantity, value and technological know-how involved and other special circumstances which might establish the controlled component or components as the principal element of the goods being procured.

2.

The items specified in this Annex include both new and used goods.

General Technology Note (GTN)

(To be read in conjunction with Section B of this Annex)

1.

The sale, supply, transfer or export of “technology” which is “required” for the “development”, “production” or “use” of goods the sale, supply, transfer or export of which is controlled in Section IX.A of this Annex, is controlled in accordance with the provisions of Section B.

2.

The “technology”“required” for the “development”, “production” or “use” of goods under control remains under control even when it is applicable to non-controlled goods.

3.

Controls do not apply to that “technology” which is the minimum necessary for the installation, operation, maintenance (checking) and repair of those goods which are not controlled or the export of which has been authorised in accordance with this Regulation.

4.

Controls on “technology” transfer do not apply to information “in the public domain”, to “basic scientific research” or to the minimum necessary information for patent applications.
