Note: Before submitting an Application for DSGL Assessment DEC recommends that you use the Online DSGL Tool to assess whether the activity you propose to conduct is controlled, and if so, whether the goods, software or technology are listed on the DSGL.
You should only submit an Application for DSGL Assessment if the Online DSGL Tool activity assessment indicates that you are conducting a controlled activity and you cannot determine whether your goods, software or technology are listed in the DSGL.
This application is only for the purpose of seeking advice as to whether goods, software or technology are controlled by the Defence and Strategic Goods List (DSGL).
You can view the DSGL at https://dsgl.defence.gov.au.
