Wassenaar Arrangement
Update of the List
During their meeting, 3 and 4 December 2013, the
Participating States have worked to make the existing
control lists more readily understood and user-friendly for
licensing authorities and exporters, and to ensure the
detection and denial of undesirable exports. New export
controls were agreed in a number of areas including
surveillance, which, under certain conditions, may be
detrimental to international and regional security and
stability.
