NSG Part 2 Control List Updated - June 2022

At the 2022 NSG Plenary Meeting, the NSG maintained its focus on technical issues important to the implementation of the Control Lists, by exchanging views and agreeing on a number of proposals to clarify and update the NSG Dual-Use List.  

Every three years, the NSG forwards consolidated changes (three Plenary Meeting decisions) to the IAEA for official publication as part of the INFCIRC series (INFCIRC/254 Part 1 and Part 2). 

States decide whether they implement changes to the Guidelines and Control Lists based on the annual publication of agreed changes to the Guidelines and Control Lists on the NSG website or wait for the IAEA publication.

The timing of implementation may vary across PGs according to national practice though all are encouraged to adopt changes in a timely manner.
