Inception date: 01 Jan 2014 | Removal date: open ended

Export licensing requirement

In December 2013, the Chinese government published a catalogue of goods classified as 'dual-use'.

This indicates said goods are considered by the Chinese government to be usable for both civilian and military purposes, requiring a special license for import or export.

In this iteration of the catalogue, the list of imports requiring a license did not change from the previous year's.

The exported goods list, however, removed one item, meaning it would no longer require a license to be exported.

Export licensing requirement

In December 2013, the Chinese government published a catalogue of goods classified as 'dual-use', meaning that such items are deemed able to be used for both civilian and military purposes.

Besides several removals from the list, one item was added to the list of exported goods, meaning that it would newly require a dual-use licence before export.

The list was made public in the Chinese Ministry of Commerce's December 2013 release of the yearly catalogue.
