Export controls: components for a civil aircraft manufacturer but the aircraft could be converted to an air to air refueling aircraft – would the parts be dual use?

Question

If we manufacture components for a civil aircraft manufacturer but the aircraft could be converted to an air to air refueling aircraft would the parts be dual use?

(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

A Dual Use item is one that is designed for a commercial application but can then be used by both commercial and military end users. If a Dual Use part is purchased by a military end user with no modifications made it will still be considered against the Dual Use list. If it is modified in any way to a military requirement, you will need to consider the item against the military list.
