Question

Are the controlled items for ITAR/EAR similar to the dual-use list?

(This question was asked at one of our recent webinars on Export Controls. You can listen to this webinar on our recent webinars page at http://opentoexport.com/info/webinars/)

Answer

The ITAR and EAR control lists are based on the same international regimes that the UK military and EU dual use list are based on (Australia Group, Missile Technology Control Regime, Nuclear Suppliers Group and Wassenaar) so they are very similar – but not identical, especially following the Export Control Reform which has seen items transition from ITAR to EAR “600 series” or maybe even EAR99 yet they are still controlled military goods as far as the UK regulations are concerned.
