EXPLANATORY NOTE
(This note is not part of the instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation.)
The purpose of the Intra Communities Transfer Directive (Directive 2009/43/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 6 May 2009) is to simplify the rules and procedures applicable to the intra-Community transfer of defence related products.
The list of products covered by Directive 2009/43/EC is the “EU Common Military List”. As the common military list is updated annually, the Directive is updated annually with an amended list. These Regulations implement and give effect to Commission Directive 2014/108/EU of 12 December 2014. This Directive was updated on 12 December 2014 to reflect the amendments made in the 2014 EU Common Military List.
