Regulation – Order amending the Export Control List
On April 5, 2019, 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 2015 version of “A Guide To Canada’s Export Control List” remains in effect until May 16, 2019. On May 17, 2019, the December 2016 version of the “A Guide To Canada’s Export Control List” (Guide) will formally come into effect. Exporters will be advised once the December 2016 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, 2016. A table identifying the date of Canadian commitments to each regime appears below.
|Export Control Regime||Latest Controls Incorporated into ECL|
|Wassenaar Arrangement||December 2016|
|Nuclear Suppliers Group||June 2016|
|Missile Technology Control Regime||October 2016|
|Australia Group||June 2016|
A brief overview of key changes are provided on the Export Controls Division website.
The regulation and the Regulatory Impact Analysis Statement were published on the Canada Gazette website on April 17, 2019. Please contact the Export Controls Policy Division for more details.
