The main 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)—coordinate trade controls on goods and technologies that have uses in connection with chemical, biological, nuclear and conventional weapons (see table 10.3).1 All four politically binding agreements operate by consensus and are implemented through national laws. They also serve an important information-exchange function since they provide a framework in which policy, licensing, enforcement, technical and intelligence officers can meet. Beyond their membership, the regimes have an important norm-setting function with regard to control lists and practices, as many non-participating states have decided to adhere to them voluntarily.
