A final compromise has been reached for the recast of EU Regulation 428/2009 of 5 May 2009 on dual-use items. At the last informal trilogue meeting held on 9 November 2009, a full provisional agreement was reached on the final compromise text.
The EU Council has now published the text of the final compromise. It may be downloaded hereunder. It still needs to be approved by the EU legislative bodies and published before entering into force.
We will follow up with a series of explanations of what has been amended or added into the dual-use regime of the European Union. Stay with us for that.
