Israel Reportedly Will Implement New Export Control System on July 15th

The Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute has reported that Israel's Customs and VAT Directorate has announced it will implement "a new and strengthened export control system" on July 15, 2008. The site reports that:

The new system is based on the recognition that effective export control is needed to combat the proliferation of systems and technologies which can be used by adversaries to threaten the security of the free world.

The present Israeli export control system does not effectively meet Israel's national and economic security needs.

Over the last few years the Customs Directorate as well as other governmental bodies identified numerous instances of inefficiency and ineffectiveness in Israel's export control system, including poor strategic management, insufficient interagency Co-ordination, shortages of manpower, short-term fixes for long-term problems, and inadequate information systems.

In order to address these shortcomings, and at the same time making the necessary response to the challenges of globalization in the 21st century, a decision was made to set up an entirely new and highly effective export control system.
It appears that this article is referring to a new dual-use export control regime in Israel. As previously reported, Israel enacted a new Defense Export Controls law that went into effect on December 31, 2007. The unofficial English translation of Israel's Defense Export Control law can be found here.

will publish additional details on Israel's new dual-use export control system once it is available.
