UK publishes updated strategic export control list

The UK’s Export Control Organisation, the governmental body responsible for issuing licences for the export of military and other strategic goods from the UK, has published an updated version of its consolidated list of items requiring export authorisation. The updated list has been published following changes made in October 2015 to controls on dual-use goods, software, and technology by the European Commission in order to implement amendments to several multilateral regimes. The changes relate primarily to new controls on machine tools, avionics technology, spacecraft equipment, and civil UAVs, and also remove from control certain encrypted information security products.

The EU published a brief summary of the changes in October here, and a comprehensive summary here.
