Working Meeting of the Export Control Committee for Jordan

CoE Project No 38

Event date: 15/05/2018

On 15th of May 2018 a workshop on dual use trade controls under the Centres of Excellence No 38 project was held in Amman, Jordan. The topic and objective of the workshop was the amendment and update of Instructions No. 1 of the year 2009 on the Export and Re-Export of dual use items.

After a final draft proposal was elaborated with substantial support from the EU P2P programme and following a series of meetings, this workshop sought the final consent on the latest version of the Instructions. The workshop was attended by the different Jordanian ministries and government agencies that are members of the “Export Control Committee”, an interagency body, established in 2009 and consisting of 16 different Jordanian institutions.

In preparation of this workshop the chair and coordinating ministry of the Export Control Committee, which is the Jordanian Ministry of Industry, Trade and Supply provided to all members the latest version of the draft Instructions. Comments were received until the day before the workshop. In the workshop a final assessment, article by article, of the proposed amendment was provided, along with the possibility for all participating institutions to provide additional comments or ask for clarifications. This workshop represented the last chance for consultation prior to its final adoption and publication.

From the very beginning a lively discussion took place, touching upon the final draft and other cross-cutting issues. In fact, the workshop enabled the participants to acquire a more in-depth understanding of the trade control legislation and the overall functioning of the trade control system.

The next steps include the draft of a set of templates and the creation of further tools in order to be ease the day-to-day implementation of the Instructions. These will include application and licensing forms together with guidelines for streamlining the licensing assessment and decision making process.
The workshop was supported by experts from the United Kingdom and Germany.

As follow-up to this workshop, outreach-to-industry events will be held. The first one dedicated to industry engaged in the cross-border trade of dual use items will take place in July, in cooperation of the EU P2P and the US EXBS programme. This workshop will aim to receive feedback from the companies on the comprehensiveness and applicability of the legislation and implementing procedures thereby supporting the fine-tuning of the procedures as established in the updated Instructions.
