Regulation – Order amending the Area Control List

On April 24, 2012, the Government of Canada finalized the regulatory process to amend the Area Control List (ACL). This amendment formally removes Myanmar (Burma) from the ACL, a list of countries to which the Governor in Council deems it necessary to control the export or transfer of any goods and technology.

Exporters of uncontrolled goods and technology (items that are not listed on Canada's Export Control List) no longer require an export permit issued under the authority of the Export and Import Permits Act in order to lawfully export those items to Burma (Myanmar).

Please note that sanctions under the Special Economic Measures Act concerning Burma remain in force.
