During 2012 the ongoing review of the European Union (EU) Common Position defining common rules governing control of exports of military technology and equipment led to no major developments regarding EU-wide rules for the control of arms exports, brokering, trans-shipment and transit. However, EU member states moved ahead with the implementation of a new regulation governing intra-community trade in defence goods. The range of dual-use items subject to control was expanded in line with agreements in the multilateral control regimes, albeit with a substantial delay due to the new requirement to involve the European Parliament. The European Parliament's efforts to expand the coverage of EU controls on dual-use items to include transfers of surveillance technology formed part of a range of initiatives in this area in the wake of the events of the Arab Spring in 2011 and 2012. The European Parliament is thus emerging as a new actor shaping dual-use trade controls in the EU.
