On 18 December, an article from Perkins Coie said that the Chinese government has regularly been criticised for failing to prevent Chinese entities from illegally exporting controlled technologies to developing countries. The Export Control Law is being considered in order to fulfill China’s international obligations as a permanent member of the UN Security Council and as a party to a number of international treaties that control trade in nuclear, biological, and conventional weapons. It is also said that the current system is unable to support enforcement actions in practice. The article briefly explains the scope of the draft Law Law which would regulate the export of dual-use items, military products, nuclear materials and equipment and other goods, technologies, and services related to national security, as well as the transfer, re-export, and transit and transshipment of controlled items. The Law also authorises competent Chinese government agencies responsible for export control to cooperate with counterparts in other countries/regions and international organisations. The article refers to concerns about transparency, definitions and scope of the Law.
