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;

'explosive signatures' are features which are characteristic of explosives in any form prior to their initiation, as detected using technology including, but not limited to, ion mobility spectrometry, chemiluminescence, fluorescence, nuclear, acoustic or electromagnetic techniques;

'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;

'improvised explosive devices' means devices fabricated or intended to be placed in an improvised manner incorporating destructive, lethal, noxious, 'pyrotechnic' or incendiary chemicals designed to destroy, disfigure or harass; they may incorporate military stores, but are normally devised from non-military components;

'lighter-than-air vehicles' means balloons and airships that rely on hot air or on lighter-than-air gases such as helium or hydrogen for their lift;

'previously separated' means the application of any process intended to increase the concentration of the controlled isotope;

'production' means all production stages (e.g. product engineering, manufacture, integration, assembly (mounting), inspection, testing, quality assurance);

'propellants' means substances or mixtures that react chemically to produce large volumes of hot gases at controlled rates to perform mechanical work;

'pyrotechnic(s)' means mixtures of solid or liquid fuels and oxidisers which, when ignited, undergo an energetic chemical reaction at a controlled rate intended to produce specific time delays, or quantities of heat, noise, smoke, visible light or infrared radiation; pyrophorics are a subclass of pyrotechnics, which contain no oxidisers but ignite spontaneously on contact with air;

'required' as applied to 'technology', refers to only that portion of 'technology' which is peculiarly responsible for achieving or exceeding the controlled performance levels, characteristics or functions. Such 'required' 'technology' may be shared by different goods and the intended use of 'technology' is irrelevant to whether it is 'required';
