Export controls

Export controls shall ensure that items, goods and technologies, which potentially can be used as a threat to international peace and security, do not fall into the wrong hands.

There may be several reasons why an item is regarded as a dual-use item and therefore requires an export license before export can take place.

A dual-use item can be a physical good, a technology, a service or electronic transfers. It is the function or the item’s potential application, which determines whether the item is regarded as a dual-use item and therefore requires a specific export license.
