Canada Amends Export Control Law to Impose Controls on Transfers of Controlled Technology

Canada's Export Controls Division today posted an announcement on the agency's website advising Canadian exporters that the Export and Import Permits Act (EIPA) was recently amended to clarify specific controls over technology contained on Canada's Export Control List (ECL).

According to the Export Controls Division, the amendments to Canada's export control law:

Clarif[ies] specific controls over technology, including technical data, technical assistance and information necessary for the development, production or use of military and other strategically sensitive goods listed in the Export Control List (ECL). The amendments also provide explicit authority to control transfers, including electronic transfers, of technology listed in the ECL. These changes respond to the need for enhanced controls over the export and electronic transfer of military and strategically sensitive technology.
In addition, the amendments authorize the Minister of Foreign Affairs to consider safety and security concerns when assessing applications for permits to export or transfer goods or technology contained on the ECL.
