In 2016, participants in the four multilateral export control regimes—the Australia Group (AG), the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR), the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) and the Wassenaar Arrangement on Export Controls for Conventional Arms and Dual-use Goods and Technologies (Wassenaar Arrangement, WA)—updated their guidance on trade controls on goods and technologies that have uses in connection with chemical, biological, nuclear and conventional weapons.1 These politically binding agreements (see table 15.3) operate by consensus and are implemented and enforced through national and regional laws.2 The regimes also have an important norm-setting function as an ever-increasing number of non-members apply the regimes’ control lists and standards.
