Definitions

In this Schedule:

‘development’ means all stages prior to ‘production’(e.g. design, design research, design analyses, design concepts, assembly and testing of prototypes, pilot production schemes, design data, process of transforming design data into ‘goods’, configuration design, integration design, layouts),

‘energetic materials’ means substances or mixtures that react chemically to release energy required for their intended application; ‘explosives’, ‘pyrotechnics’ and ‘propellants’ are subclasses of energetic materials,

‘explosives’ means solid, liquid or gaseous substances or mixtures of substances which, in their application as primary, booster, or main charges in warheads, demolition and other applications, are required to detonate,

4.   INFORMATION PROVIDED BY MEMBER STATES IN CONFORMITY WITH ARTICLE 21 OF THE REGULATION

Article 21(2)(d) stipulates that Member States imposing an authorisation requirement for the transfer from their territory to another Member State of items not listed in Annex IV to the Regulation (Annex IV lists items which do not benefit from freedom of movement in the single market) must inform the Commission, which must in turn publish this information in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Only Germany and UK have notified the Commission of such measures. More specifically:

4.1.   Germany

The following provisions of the Foreign Trade and Payments Act (Aussenwirtschaftsgesetz; hereafter: the AWG) and the Foreign Trade and Payments Ordinance (Außenwirtschaftsverordnung; hereafter: the AWV), adopted on 18 December 1986, are relevant:

Section 2(2) of the AWG

See above (1.2.d)

Section 7(2) of the AWV

Section 7(2) of the AWV may refer to the entire range of items listed in Annex I or to German national listed items (numbers 900+)

7(2): The transfer of goods specified in Part I, Section C, of the Export Contol List (Annex AL) shall require a licence if the transferor is aware that the final destination of the goods is outside the European Union. Sentence 1 does not apply if the transfer already requires a licence under Article 21 paragraph 1 sentence 1 of the Regulation (EC) No 1334/2000.

Section 7(3) of the AWV

7(3): The transfer of goods not specified in the Export Control List (Annex AL) shall require a licence if the final destination of the goods is outside the European Union and if the transferor has been informed by the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (Bundesamt für Wirtschaft und Ausfuhrkontrolle; BAFA) that the goods are or may be intended, in their entirety or in part, for a military end-use as defined by Section 5c, paragraph 1,sentence 2, and the purchasing country or country of destination is a country on Country List K or a country under embargo as defined by Article 4 paragraph 2 of the Regulation (EC) No 1334/2000. If the transferor is aware that the items, as defined by sentence 1 above, which he proposes to transfer and the final destination of which is outside the European Union, are intended for a military end-use, and the purchasing country or country of destination is a country of Country List K or a country under embargo as defined by Article 4 paragraph 2 of Regulation (EC) No 1334/2000, he must notify the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA); it will decide whether or not the transfer is subject to licensing. The goods may only be transferred after the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control approved the transfer or decided that an authorisation is not required.

(Country List K as modified by the 80th Regulation amending the Foreign Trade and Payments Ordinance (AWV) of 16 August 2007) contains the following countries: Cuba and Syria)

Article 7(4) of the AWV

7(4): The transfer of goods not specified in the Export Control List (Annex AL) shall require a licence if the final destination of the goods is outside the European Union and the transferor has been informed by the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control that the goods are or may be intended, in their entirety or in part, for the setting-up, operation, or incorporation into a plant for nuclear purposes as defined by Section 5d, paragraph 1 AWV, and if the purchasing country or country of destination is Algeria, India, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Libya, North Korea, Pakistan or Syria. If a transferor is aware that the items as defined by sentence 1 above, which he proposes to transfer and the final destination of which is outside the European Union, are intended for a purposes mentioned in sentence 1 above and the purchasing country or country of destination is Algeria, India, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Libya, North Korea, Pakistan or Syria, he must notify the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA); it will decide whether or not the transfer is subject to licensing. The goods may only be transferred after the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA) approved the transfer or decided that an authorisation is not required.

4.2.   United Kingdom

Article 21(2)(a) gives Member States the option to impose controls on the transfer of other dual-use items (i.e. other than those in Annex IV) from its territory to another Member State where, subject to certain provisions, at the time of transfer it is known that the final destination is outside the Community.

The UK has implemented that optional clause in its national legislation under Article 4(2)(a) and Article 7(2)(a) of the Export of Goods, Transfer of Technology and Provision of Technical Assistance (Control) Order 2003 (S.I. 2003/2764).

are prohibited to be exported to any destination in any Member State where the exporter knows at the time of exportation that the final destination of such goods is outside the European Community and no processing or working is to be performed on those goods in any Member State to which they are to be exported.

3.

Subject to the provisions of this Order, dual-use goods not listed in Annex I of the Regulation, which the exporter has grounds for suspecting are or may be intended, in their entirety or in part, for any relevant use, are prohibited to be exported to any destination outside the European Community, unless the exporter has made all reasonable enquiries as to their proposed use and is satisfied that they will not be so used.

(ii)

if he knows at the time of the transfer that such software or technology is intended for use outside the European Community and no processing or working is to be performed on that software or technology in any Member State to which it is to be transferred.

3.

Subject to the provisions of this Order, no person shall transfer by any electronic means any dual-use software or technology not listed in Annex 1 of the Regulation, to a person or place outside the European Community where he has grounds for suspecting that such software or technology is or may be intended, in its entirety or in part, for any relevant use, unless he has made all reasonable enquiries as to its proposed use and is satisfied that it will not be so used.

4.

Subject to the provisions of this Order,

(a)

Article 21(1) of the Regulation and paragraphs (1), (2) and (3) of this article do not prohibit the transfer of any dual-use software or technology in relation to which a licence in writing has been granted by the Secretary of State provided that all conditions attaching to the licence are complied with; and
