Export ban

On 11 March 2022, the Japanese Ministry for Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) released an amendment to its Security Export Control system's Export Trade Control Order regime. The ban applied to all goods already on the list of 'controlled' exports, as well as some new ones which were considered as 'reinforcing the military capabilities' of Russia and Belarus.

These included various dual-use goods, weapons, and electrical/electronic equipment. METI stated that the new regime would be effective from 18 March 2022. While the Export Trade Control Order regime does not explicitly ban export of the goods in question, the rule changes brought forward by METI state that 'in principle, exports [of these goods] will not be allowed'. There are a series of exceptions to this clause, however, these are fringe cases and therefore this is considered a de facto export ban.

The change was part of a series of economic sanctions implemented by Japan in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Please refer to the related state acts for more information on other announcements.
