Review of the End User List

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) has issued the End User List, providing exporters with information on foreign entities for which concern cannot be eliminated regarding involvement in activities such as the development of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) and other items, for the purpose of enhancing the effectiveness of the catch-all control* on cargos and other loads relating to WMDs and other items. METI hereby announces that it has revised the End User List based on the latest information.

* Catch-all control is a system that obliges exporters to submit an application for an export license for goods that may be used for the development of WMDs even if they are not subject to export restrictions under international agreements.
