Dual Use Controls and License Authorities of Non-EU States

This page provides links to the licensing authorities of countries outside the EU that are a member of one or more of the export control regimes. While it would be too much to assume that the control  lists of these countries align to the EU’ s just because the country is a member of one of the regimes, in general it could be expected that the export control lists of these countries should approximately reflect the structure of the EU’s lists.
