On September 1st, 2011, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry ("METI") announced its update of Proliferation concerned parties list (otherwise called Foreign Users List or Gaikoku User List) on its web site.
This list is similar to Entity List of US BIS. The listed entities are considered as have been involved in development, manufacturing, use or storage of weapon of massive destruction ("WMD"). Please be noted this list is not embargo list. Although trader needs to have close attention to WMD proliferation concern when doing trade with listed entities, if it is obviously clear the item is not used for WMD purpose, the trade is not denied. This list have been updated in practice once a year, last update was September 2010.
The new list can be found here: http://www.meti.go.jp/policy/anpo/law_document/tutatu/t08kaisei/110901EUL/t08kaisei_userlist_kohyo.pdf
In total, the number of entities are increased to 354. I didn't closely check the entity name, but most of the increased entities are in Iran and in North Korea. Indian entities are decreased much.
For global traders, what entity is decontolled, especially in India & China, would be point of interest. The entity names which are removed from the list are as follows.
・【India】Armament Research and Development Establishment (ARDE), DRDO
・【India】Bharat Dynamics Ltd. (BDL)
・【India】Indian Rare Earths Ltd. (IRE), DAE
・【India】Liquid Propulsion Systems Centre (LPSC), Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO)
・【India】Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC), ISRO
・【India】Solid State Physics Laboratory, DRDO
・【India】United Phosphorous Limited
・【China】China Electronic Product Reliability Environmental Testing Research Institute (CEPREI)
Above entity names are no longer in the list as WMD proliferation concerned parties of Japanese METI.
However, for traders who handles US origin items, it is important to note Indian Rare Earths Ltd. (IRE), Department of Atomic Energy, is still listed on Entity List of US EAR. It is encouraged to double check with other restricted parties list issued by US government.
