A range of commercial products and technologies can be used both for civilian and for military purposes. These are called “dual-use goods”.

Dual-use goods include machine tools, testing and measuring equipment, materials, valves, electronics and a host of other industrial products. Their export is regulated by the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).

In this Sanctions Connect Call we will discuss the Dos and DONTs of exporting dual use items from the US.
