India to Launch New Export Control Enforcement Initiative

The Economic Times of India has reported that the Government of India is planning a new export controls initiative to intercept exports to prohibited end-users and "end-users of concern." According to the report:

The government is planning to ask a core group on proliferation that consists of ministries of home affairs, defence and external affairs to draw up a list of ‘end users of concern.’ This will be based on global trends in proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, information from other countries and UN Security Council resolutions. The list will be shared with all customs and port authorities.

The government will authorise the customs department through a notification to stop any export consignment to these business houses. Once intercepted, the exporter would be told that he should seek a license to go ahead with the export. The application will be approved or rejected within a specified time frame, possibly, two weeks, it is understood. The government is likely to work with associations of biotech companies, chemicals makers and aerospace manufacturers to create awareness.
