What is subject to control?

The biological substances, delivery systems and materials, that are subject to control are listed in Annex 1 to Executive Order no. 981 of 15 October 2009 with subsequent amendments and Annex 1 to Executive Order no. 803 of 22 June 2017.

The controlled biological substances, delivery systems, and related materials are in general the same as listed in the EU regulation for export control of products and technology with dual-use potential (Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1382/2014 with subsequent amendments).

In pursuance of the Biosecurity Acts (no. 474 of 17 June 2008 and no. 53 of 11 January 2017), certain elements regarding biological agents, delivery systems and related materials require additional explanation. This can be, for example, general exceptions from control, as well as lower threshold values.
