(This note is not part of the Regulations)
The Dual-Use and Related Goods Regulations 1996 contain references to Council Decision No. 94/942/CFSP of 19 December 1994 on the joint action adopted by the Council of the European Union on the basis of Article J3 of the Treaty on European Union concerning the control of exports of dual-use goods (O.J. No. L367, 31.12.94, p. 8). The Decision has now been further amended by Council Decision No. 97/419/CFSP. These Regulations amend the 1996 Regulations so that references to Decision 94/942/CFSP are to that Decision as further amended by Decision 97/419/CFSP.
A consequence of Decision 97/419/CFSP is that nine entries in Schedule 2 to the 1996 Regulations are redundant, and they are revoked by these Regulations.
