WASHINGTON (CN) - The Bureau of Industry and Security has amended rules regarding a multilateral export control arrangement to keep conventional arms and dual-use goods and technologies from amassing.
A group of 40 countries has agreed to help thwart political instability by together determining which items will have export controls and which will not.
Country representatives met in December 2010, and the U.S. now has been updated with the agreed-upon changes to the entries controlled for national security reasons.
The agreement is called the Wassenaar Arrangement on Export Controls for Conventional Arms and Dual-Use Goods and Technologies.
