DEFENCE AND STRATEGIC GOODS LIST

 

November 1996

 

PREFACE

 

 

 

The Defence and Strategic Goods List (DSGL) is identified in regulation 13E of the Customs (Prohibited Exports) Regulations 1958 as the document titled ‘Defence and Strategic Goods List’:

(a)    formulated and published for the purpose of paragraph 112 (2A) (aa) of the Customs Act 1901 by the Minister for Defence; and

(b)    dated November 1996;

as amended by the Minister for Defence and in force from time to time.

 

Goods included in the list may not be exported from Australia unless a licence or permission has been granted by the Minister or an authorised person and that licence or permission is produced to a Collector of Customs before exportation: regulation 13E of the Customs (Prohibited Exports) Regulations 1958.

 

The DSGL was first published in 1996 when the Customs (Prohibited Exports) Regulations were consolidated and revised as a result of an Australian National Audit Office review of the Defence export control activity.

 

The DSGL includes equipment, assemblies and components, associated test, inspection and production equipment, materials, software and technology and is divided into two parts.

 

PART 1 covers defence and related goods — those goods and technologies designed or adapted for use by armed forces or goods that are inherently lethal.  These goods include:

 

·       Military Goods — those goods or technology that is designed or adapted for military purposes including parts and accessories thereof.

 

·       Non Military Lethal Goods (NMLG) — that equipment that is inherently lethal, incapacitating or destructive such as non‑military firearms, non‑military ammunition and commercial explosives and initiators.

 

PART 2 covers those goods that have a dual use. Dual‑use goods comprise equipment and technologies developed to meet commercial needs but which may be used either as military components or for the development or production of military systems or weapons of mass destruction.  This part is further subdivided into and is made up of the following 10 categories:

 

·       Category 0 — Nuclear Materials;

·       Category 1 — Materials, Chemicals, Microorganisms and Toxins;

·       Category 2 — Materials Processing;

·       Category 3 — Electronics;

·       Category 4 — Computers;

·       Category 5 — Telecommunications and Information Security;

·       Category 6 — Sensors and Lasers;

·       Category 7 — Navigation and Avionics;

·       Category 8 — Marine;

·       Category 9 — Aerospace and Propulsion.

 

The DSGL is amended from time to time to reflect changes in the various multilateral non‑proliferation and export control regimes of which Australia is a member.

NOTES

 

GENERAL NOTES

 

1.         The Notes, Technical Notes and Nota Bene (N.B.) appearing in the Defence and Strategic Goods List form an integral part of the control text.

 

2.                   The index at the end of the Defence and Strategic Goods List is provided for guidance only and does not form part of the control text.

 

3.                   The object of the controls contained in the Defence and Strategic Goods List should not be defeated by the export of any non‑controlled goods (including plant) containing one or more controlled components when the controlled component or components are the principal element of the goods and can feasibly be removed or used for other purposes.

N.B.:    In judging whether the controlled component or components are to be considered the principal element, it is necessary to weigh the factors of quantity, value and technological know‑how involved and other special circumstances which might establish the controlled component or components as the principal element of the goods being procured.

 

4.                   Goods specified in the Defence and Strategic Goods List include both new and used goods.

 

5.                   Terms in “quotations” are defined terms. Refer to the “Definitions of Terms” section of the Defence and Strategic Goods List. Words and terms appearing under “Definitions of Terms”, if used in their undefined forms, take their common or dictionary meanings.

 

PART 1 — MUNITIONS LIST

 

ML 8

 

Specially formulated pharmaceutical products containing ML8 materials are not controlled.

 

ML 10

 

Absence of items from the Munitions List and absence of configuration for military use would mean that an aircraft would not be considered military.

 


 

PART 2 — DUAL‑USE GOODS AND TECHNOLOGIES

 

General Technology Note

 

The transfer of “technology” according to the General Technology Note, for “production” or “development” of items on this list shall be treated with vigilance.

 

General Technology Note

 

Controls on intangible “technology” are to be exercised as far as the scope of legislation† will allow.

 

General Software Note

 

The transfer of “software”, for “production” or “development” of items on this list shall be treated with vigilance in accordance with national policies and the aims of this regime.

 

Source Code

 

Taking into account national practices and legislation†, Participating States agree that “source code” items are controlled either by “software” or by “software” and “technology” controls, except when such “source code” items are explicitly decontrolled.

 

Medical equipment

 

Equipment specially designed for medical end‑use that incorporates an item controlled in the Dual‑Use List is not controlled.

 

Category 9

 

“Development” or “production” “technology” controlled by 9E for gas turbine engines remains controlled when the “technology” is used for repair, rebuild and overhaul. Excluded from control are: technical data, drawings or documentation for maintenance activities directly associated with calibration, removal or replacement of damaged or unserviceable line replaceable units, including replacement of whole engines or engine modules.

 

 

†          Australia’s export control legislation on the intangible transfers of “software” and “technology” is the Weapons of Mass Destruction (Prevention of Proliferation) Act 1995. The object of this Act is to ensure that goods are not supplied or exported, and services are not provided, in circumstances where the goods will or may be used in, or the services will or may assist a Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) program.

 

A WMD program means a plan or program for the development, production, acquisition or stockpiling of nuclear, biological or chemical weapons or missiles capable of delivering such weapons.

 

The provision of services includes doing anything that confers a benefit on, grants a right or privilege to, provides a facility for, or otherwise assists, someone.

2.    ‘Simulant’ is a substance or material that is used in place of toxic agent (chemical or biological) in training, research, testing or evaluation.

 

 

1A005          Body armour, and specially designed components therefor, other than those manufactured to military standards or specifications or to their equivalents in performance.

                   N.B.:      SEE ALSO ML13.

 

                   N.B.:      For “fibrous or filamentary materials” used in the manufacture of body armour, see 1C010.

 

                   Note 1:   1A005 does not control body armour or protective garments when accompanying their user for the user’s own personal protection.

                   Note 2:   1A005 does not control body armour designed to provide frontal protection only from both fragment and blast from non‑military explosive devices.

 

 

1A006          Equipment, specially designed or modified for the disposal of improvised explosive devices, as follows, and specially designed components and accessories therefor:

                   N.B.:      SEE ALSO ML4.b.

                   b.     ‘Disruptors’.

                           Technical Note:

                           Disruptors’ are devices specially designed for the purpose of preventing the operation of an explosive device by projecting a liquid, solid or frangible projectile.

 

                   Note:      1A006 does not control equipment when accompanying its operator.

1A007          Equipment and devices, specially designed to initiate charges and devices containing energetic materials, by electrical means, as follows:

                   N.B.:      SEE ALSO ML4.a., ML4.b., ML909, 3A229 AND 3A232.

                   Technical Notes:

1.    The word initiator or igniter is sometimes used in place of the word detonator.

2.    For the purpose of 1A007.b. the detonators of concern all utilise a small electrical conductor (bridge, bridge wire, or foil) that explosively vaporises when a fast, high‑current electrical pulse is passed through it. In non slapper types, the exploding conductor starts a chemical detonation in a contacting high explosive material such as PETN (pentaerythritoltetranitrate). In slapper detonators, the explosive vaporization of the electrical conductor drives a flyer or slapper across a gap, and the impact of the slapper on an explosive starts a chemical detonation. The slapper in some designs is driven by magnetic force. The term exploding foil detonator may refer to either an EB or a slapper‑type detonator.
