Supply - when controlled technology, or access to that technology, is provided to users located outside of Australia.
Publication - when controlled technology is placed it in the public domain.
Pre-publication - activities, such as supplying a draft publication to a publisher or a peer reviewer, that support the pubication process.
Export - sending goods and/or technology from Australia to a place outside of Australia.
As a first step, it is important to understand whether the goods or technologies you are using actually trigger control thresholds. You can self-assess using the Online DSGL Tool on the DEC website.
The list of controlled goods and technologies (the Defence and Strategic Goods List) is split into two parts:
Part 1 lists munitions (or military) items. These items are more tightly controlled.
Part 2 lists dual-use items; that is, items that may be used for commercial purposes, but may be used in military systems or for weapon of mass destruction purposes.
I am an academic at an Australian university, with expertise in design and creation of submicron devices. I have been asked to be a consultant for a company in another country that wishes to manufacture such devices. Do I need approval to do so?
Will you be sending your controlled technology from Australia?
