The export control list
was revised in 2011 in consistency with Nuclear Suppliers Groups and Australian Groups specifications, besides enforcing the Licensing and Enforcement Rules 2009 to keep a vigil on any unlawful transportation of nuclear related material, technology, testing outcomes or equipments, he concluded.
In Table 5 of the 2010-11 report (Exports of Military Goods and Technology by Destination and Export Control List
[ECL] Item), many figures are "double-counted" by repeating identical values across two or more ECL categories.
Export Control List
(ECL) Items 2-1 and 2-2 within Group 2 military goods are defined as "smooth-bore weapons" and "other arms" less or greater than specified calibres.
For example, the report lists $160,000 in shipments to Egypt of the Export Control List
In the first case, the dual-use goods involved are identified as the Group 1 category of Canada's "Export Control List
," and because such goods require export permits and shipment verification, it would be possible (and logical) to include the details of their shipment in the report.
(2.) The small arms export totals were compiled from figures reported for Item 2001 of the Export Control List
(ECL) in the Export of Military Goods from Canada: Annual Report for the years 1993 to 2002 (see the Export and Import Control Bureau webpage at http://www.dfait-maeci.gc.ca/eicb/military/milit_tech-en.asp).
The government report details the overseas shipment during 2002 of goods making up Group 2 of the Export Control List
, that is, goods that are "specially designed or modified for military use." Table 1 identifies the largest recipients of military goods reported for 2002.
For each recipient country, the Annual Report provides the value of shipments in each of 19 subcategories of military goods identified on the Export Control List
. In its final table, the Report lists the total value of 2000 sales for each subcategory along with the equivalent value for 1999.
The revised Export and Import Permits Act added a new category of strategic goods to the Export Control List
, the list of products requiring prior government approval to export.
The annual report on the export of military goods from Canada details the shipment of goods specifically designed or adapted for military use and controlled under Group 2 of the Export Control List
(ECL) as defined by Canada's Export and Imports Permit Act.
Annual Report data is compiled from export permits required for shipment of military goods, that is, goods which appear on the Export Control List
(ECL) of equipment "specially designed for modified or military use." All ECL goods require an export permit, regardless of user or destination (with the exception of the US).
Along with other military goods, small arms appear on the Export Control List
and require export permits before shipment from Canada to any non-US destination.
