On 30 June 2011, the European Commission issued the Green Paper "The dual-use export control system of the European Union: ensuring security and competitiveness in a changing world" (See Green Paper) as part of its efforts to launch a public consultation on the EU's dual-use export control system. The Commission is recognizing that it needs input from EU exporters of the wide variety of categories of dual-use items - on both the detailed provisions of Regulation 428/2009 (i.e. the current Dual-Use Regulation) and a potential future strategy for the system as a whole to adapt it to changing circumstances - to enable it to strike the right balance between the pursued objective of security and non-proliferation and the need to support business activities striving for innovation and competitiveness, particularly in the EU's technology sector. Companies and organisations can provide much-needed input on the potential reform of the EU dual-use export control system.
