In order to protect the economic security of the EU, an overview, in which the export control lists of the EU member states have been compiled, was published. This gives each member state the opportunity to adapt its own export list and coordinate export controls.

For example, the Netherlands carry out controls on machinery to produce semiconductors. Germany could react by also making those machines subject to authorization. The list aims to facilitate cooperation at EU level and to coordinate measures around export controls better.

The list published on October 20 is an initial compilation of the national export control lists of the individual EU member states. It will be updated on an ongoing basis.
