UK NOTICE TO EXPORTERS 2018/07: GUIDANCE EXEMPTIONS TO EXPORT CONTROL FOR PRODUCTS THAT USE CRYPTOGRAPHY

On 3rd April, the UK Export Control Organisation issued a new Notice containing guidance provided to assist exporters to make their own assessment on the application of the ‘Cryptography Note’ (i.e. Note 3 to Category 5 Part 2, Information Security as it appears in Annex I to Council Regulation 428/2009/EC, as amended).  Products that use cryptography are typically controlled under the dual use list. Note 3 is intended to exclude goods from control that can be easily acquired by the general public, require little or no support to install, or where the cryptographic functionality cannot be easily changed by the user.  Note 3 also relaxes controls on certain components and software of such items.
