Exporting controlled goods and technologies
Part 2: Dual Use
Commercial items and technologies that may be used or adapted for use in a military program, for the development or production of a military system or weapons of mass destruction, or contribute to the development and production of chemical, biological or nuclear weapons.
Australian legislation controls the export of controlled goods and technologies under two Acts:
- Customs Act 1901 (Cth) controls tangible goods.
- Defence Trade Control Act 2012 (DTCA) controls intangible goods.
