Defence Trade Controls

  1. Does the research involve the supply of DSGL technology from a person within Australia to a person outside of Australia?
  2. Does the research involve the publication of Part 1 (Munitions List) DSGL technology?
  3. Does the research involve the brokering of the transfer of DSGL items between two or more persons located outside of Australia.

If yes to any of the aforementioned, complete the Compliance Assessment Form – Australian Export Controls and provide the Form to Legal and Integrity at for review.

Defence and Strategic Goods List (DSGL)

The DSGL is a legislative instrument that is a compilation of military and dual‐use goods and technology that Australia controls for export as a member of international counter‐proliferation regimes.
