Regulation – Order amending the Export Control List
On March 13, 2020, the Government of Canada finalized the regulatory process to amend the Export Control List. This amendment serves to add controls, clarify controls and remove controls over specific items as agreed upon in the various multilateral export control regimes.
The current December 2016 version of ”A Guide To Canada’s Export Control List ” remains in effect until April 30, 2020. On May 1, 2020, the December 2018 version of the “A Guide To Canada’s Export Control List (December 2018)” (Guide) will formally come into effect. Exporters will be advised once the December 2018 version of the Guide becomes available on the Export Controls Division website.
The new version of the Guide will incorporate Canadian commitments and obligations to the various multilateral export control regimes up to December 31, 2018, including those commitments made in 2017. A table identifying the date of Canadian commitments to each regime appears below.
|Export Control Regime||Latest Controls Incorporated into ECL|
|Wassenaar Arrangement||December 2017 and December 2018|
|Nuclear Suppliers Group||June 2017 and June 2018|
|Missile Technology Control Regime||October 2017 and October 2018|
|Australia Group||June 2017 and June 2018|
The regulation and the Regulatory Impact Analysis Statement were published on the Canada Gazette website on April 1, 2020.
Exporters wishing to review the specific changes that were made to the Guide or who have any questions should contact the Export Controls Policy Division at firstname.lastname@example.org.
