On August 25, 2010, METI posted the public comment in update of classification list of 2B352.d.
"Cross (tangential) flow filtration equipment and components"
2B352 is controlled under Australia Group ("AG") regime. In June 2010, Japan proposed AG to make exemption of certain components of 2B352.d and it was admitted in AG.
Accordingly, Japan update the local export control list.
2B352 items are treated by Health care industry and certain exemptions note would be beneficial for them.
The implementation is expected in certain months ahead.
