Canada: Updated export control list, export permit process

Export control list and export permit process have been updated

Export control list and export permit process have been updated

The export control list and export permit process have been updated as follows:

  • Global Affairs Canada regularly updates “A Guide to Canada’s Export Control List” to reflect the latest additions and deletions to the export control list. The latest changes included in the revised guide—effective from 1 July 2023—are in line with multilateral export control regimes, bilateral agreements, and specific unilateral controls that Canada has assented to as of 1 January 2023.
  • Earlier this year, Canada updated its export permits regulations to harmonize these rules with current permit application procedures. In particular, the government revised the Export Controls Online System (NEXCOL) to request more detail and clarity under its information requirements.
