  • Exports to Russia require a lengthy, individual export licence - general permission revoked!

Exports to Russia require a lengthy, individual export licence - general permission revoked!

As a result of Russia's unlawful invasion of Ukraine's territory and risks to the EU's vital security interests, the EU tightened export controls on dual-use items and technology, as well as associated services:

  • Regulation (EU) 2022/328 restricts the export of products and technology having multiple uses, as well as services connected to them.

  • Regulation (EU) 2022/394 tightens export controls on navigation products and technology.

  • Regulation (EU) 2022/428 restricts exports of energy-related goods and services to Russia (excluding nuclear industry and the downstream sector of energy transport).

  • Regulation (EU) 2022/576 restricts the export of certain high-tech items.

Regulation (EU) 2021/821 establishes eight general export authorizations for the EU.

Currently, the EU has three general export authorizations for Russia:

  • EU003 is used to re-export equipment fixed or replaced in the EU.

  • EU004 is for exporting fair commodities (exports of telecommunications equipment).

  • EU005 (exports of telecommunications equipment).

Russian exports must now no longer be allowed to benefit from EU general export authorizations EU003, 04, and 5. Delegated acts took effect the day after they are published in the Official Journal of the EU. This Regulation is fully binding and all Member States must immediately comply.
