October 2014 - In April 2014, the European Commission (EC) issued its “Communication from the Commission to the Council and the European Parliament on the Review of export control policy: ensuring security and competitiveness in a changing world”. In January 2013, the EC issued a Green Paper asking for stakeholders comments through a consultation process. ASD responded to the Green Paper, and supplied comments and suggestions. In principle, ASD supports and welcomes the Commission’s Communication regarding a review of the current Regulation 428/2009 governing the control of exports of dual-use goods to meet the future security needs of the European Union.
