This Order, SI 2018/165, comes into force on 5th March.  It updates the list of goods requiring an export licence in the UK.  These changes are described as technical and minor in nature – for the most part they seek to clarify existing controls, and there is a new definition on “biological agents” and the deletion of the definition for “adapted for use in war”. The changes reflect those made to the EU Common Military List, and those made under the Wassenaar Arrangement, an international export control agreement.
