EUROPEAN COMMISSION STARTS CONSULTATIONS ON ITS GUIDELINES FOR “SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR MILITARY USE” UNDER THE TRANSFER DIRECTIVE

On 6th May, Squire Patton Boggs published an article on EU Council Directive 2009/43/EC which regulates terms and conditions of the transfer of defence-related products within the EU, with products subject to licensing requirements to the extent they are “specially designed for military use” (SDfMU).  The Commission has launched an initiative to clarify the scope of the term “specially designed for military use”.  The survey says that the objective is to facilitate circulation of defence-related products within the EU and thus, help to boost the competitiveness of the EU’s defence sector.
