Nau mai, haere mai – register your interest to attend an online consultation workshop or hui on proposals to clarify the purpose of the Export Controls regime, revise the criteria used to assess export applications, and enhance transparency.
Following an independent review of the Export Controls regime, Manatū Aorere (MFAT) is likely to be consulting on some proposed changes this month.
What it’s about:
Manatū Aorere administers the Export Controls regime, which controls the export of strategic and military end-use goods and technology. ‘Dual-use’ goods that have both military and non-military applications may also fall within the regime.
An effective Export Controls regime contributes to a safe and just world, aligned with the commitments Aotearoa has made to arms control, disarmament, and human rights. It also helps us meet our commitment to being a responsible exporter of these goods.
Our own Te Taumata trustee, Te Taru White will be facilitating the first hui on Tuesday 23rd August. If you would like to attend the hui, or one of the sector workshops, please register via the button below to have your say.
Consultation event dates:
· Tuesday 23rd August: Māori Consultation Hui
· Wednesday 24th August: Research and university sector focused workshop
· Thursday 25th August: Exporter focused workshop
· Monday 29th August: Civil Society (including NGOs) focused workshop
Please email [email protected] if you have any pātai.
