EU establishes new General Export Authorisations for dual-use items

The EU has amended the existing Dual-Use Regulation (Regulation 428/2009) to create new General Export Authorisations at EU level, formerly known as "Community General Export Authorisations" (CGEA) and now renamed "Union General Export Authorisations" (UGEAs) in line with Lisbon Treaty provisions. New provisions aiming to enhance mechanisms for, inter alia, Member State information exchange, dual-use framework review and potential negotiations with third countries on mutual recognition agreements are also introduced. The amending Regulation (i.e. Regulation 1232/2011) was published in the EU's Official Journal on 8 December 2011 and will enter into force on 7 January 2012.
