The 19th Asia Export Control Seminar was held in Tokyo on Feb 7 - 9, 2012.
The presentations by many country representatives are impressive and informative. Among of them, below is the personal note and new information for me.
Philippine - According to the presentation, the development of national legislation is ongoing, "Strategic Goods Management Act". Involving the regulation of import, export, re-export, transit and transshipment of strategic goods, technologies, equipment and service. It looks it is still developing stage, I would like to follow.
Japan MOFA - I have thought transit was not well controlled in Japanese export control regulation, only transshipment is in scope of Foreign Exchange and Foreign Trade Law ("FEFTL"). It is true, but I find today the transit of all cargoes "to and from North Korea" is controlled under another law, "Act on Special Measures concerning Cargo Inspections etc. pursuant to UNSC Resolution 1874 etc." The Act was entry into force since July 2010 and covers only "DPRK related items", namely, all arms and related materials, WMD related items, and luxury goods. The enforcement agencies are Japan Coast Guard (JCG) and Japan Customs. Up to now, no actual enforcement case, and training exercise was conducted by JCG.
Pakistan - I have no knowledge about Pakistan export control, but according to their presentation, they have legal framework and control lists based on EU pattern and includes items from NSG, MTCR, and AG. I understand their significant geographical location near Afghanistan and Iran, so activity to prevent proliferation in Pakistan is important.
