The recast Export Control Regulation (EU 2021/0821) setting up a “modernised” regime for the control of exports, brokering and technical assistance, transit and transfer of dual use items entered into force on 9 September 2021.

The recast Regulation replaced the Dual-Use regulation that was introduced in 2019 and includes some key changes:

  • It introduces two new general export authorizations for the intercompany transfer of software, technology, and encryption items to certain countries;
  • It includes a requirement for exporters to implement an internal compliance program under certain conditions;
  • Controls are introduced for the provision of technical assistance in certain instances; and
  • End use controls on cyber-surveillance equipment are introduced.
