Defence Trade Control - Australian Government

Description

You may require this permit if you export, supply, broker or publish controlled goods, software or technology listed in the Defence and Strategic Goods List. Controlled goods, software or technology include:        

  • data
  • blueprints
  • designs
  • manuals
  • training programs
  • consulting services
  • diagrams
  • formulae

that has military utility or which may have a dual-use (indirect military application) as well.

A permit is only required when an export, supply, brokering or publishing activity is controlled and the goods, software or technology are listed in the Defence and Strategic Goods List. The export, supply, brokering or publishing of goods, software or technology that are not listed in the Defence and Strategic Goods List does not require a permit. If the goods, software or technology are listed in the Defence and Strategic Goods List but your export, supply, brokering or publishing activity is not controlled you will not require a permit.

To determine whether a permit is required to export, supply, publish or broker controlled goods, software or technology use the Defence and Strategic Goods List self-assessment Tool.

Use the Activity Questionnaire to determine if your export, supply, brokering or publishing activity is controlled and use the Defence Strategic Goods List Search Tool to determine if your goods, software or technology are listed in the Defence and Strategic Goods List.

If you are still not sure whether you require a permit after using the self-assessment Tool, you will need to submit an application to the Defence Export Control Office for assessment. Applications of controlled goods and technologies are considered on a case by case basis depending on the type, the end use, the receiver of the goods and final end user.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
