Export Control Alert: Canada Announces Changes to its Export and Technology Controls Regime


On December 19, Foreign Affairs and International Trade's Export Controls Division (ECD) announced a number of changes to the Export Control List (ECL) which are effective December 16, 2011. These changes will not be published in the Canada Gazette or on ECD's wesbite until early 2012. A copy of the new Guide to Canada's Export Controls (2010) is available by emailing ECD at excol-ceed.epe@international.gc.ca. Alternatively, you may contact us at jboscariol@mccarthy.ca for a copy. Exporters should be aware that the Guide to Canada's Export Controls (2007) is no longer in force.

The amendments to the ECL include the addition of numerous goods and technology which now require an export permit for their transfer from Canada. The amendments also include the removal of various items from control as well as clarifications regarding existing controlled items.
