On 30th June, the Department of International Trade published Notice to Exporters 2019/10.  It reports that the Export Control Order 2008 has been amended and the consolidated list of strategic military and dual-use items that require export authorisation has been updated accordingly.  A new amending order implements EU Directive 2019/514, making changes to the list of defence-related products corresponding to changes made to the European Common Military List (CML) that was previously updated following changes agreed in the Wassenaar Arrangement (an international export control regime).  It also removes Eritrea from the list of countries at Part 2 Schedule 4, which lists countries and destinations embargoed and subject to transit control for military goods, and revokes provisions that provided for offences connected to breaches of UN and EU sanctions on Eritrea.
