Regulation - Orders issuing General Export Permit No. 43 and General Export Permit No. 44

On May 3, 2012, the Government of Canada concluded the regulatory process issuing General Export Permit No. 43 – Nuclear Goods and Technology to Certain Destinations (GEP 43) and General Export Permit No. 44 - Nuclear-related Dual-use Goods and Technology to Certain Destinations (GEP 44) and cancelling General Export Permit No. 27 – Nuclear-Related Dual-Use Goods.

As a result of the introduction of these new regulations, exporters will no longer be required to obtain an individual export permit from Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada, when exporting eligible goods and technology to eligible destinations, as identified in GEP 43 and GEP 44, when accompanied by a valid export licence from the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission.

The order will be published in the May 23, 2012 edition of the Canada Gazette, Part II.
