Incorporating international commitments made until December 2020 and streamlining the process to incorporate future international commitments
On June 3, 2021, the Government of Canada finalized the regulatory process to amend the Export Control List (ECL) to incorporate the latest version of “A Guide to Canada’s Export Control List” (the Guide). The new version of the Guide will bring into force the commitments Canada has made in the various multilateral export control regimes up to December 31, 2020.
The current December 2018 version of the Guide remains in effect until July 23, 2021. Registered users of the Export Controls On-Line (EXCOL) electronic permitting system will receive an email message with a link to the new Guide when the amended Export Control List is published in Canada Gazette Part II on June 23, 2021. They will receive a follow-up email on July 23, 2021 to advise that the December 2020 version the Guide will enter into force the following day. This will provide EXCOL users with 30 days to become familiar with the updated controls.

EU Commission: “EU and US Take Decisive Step to End Aircraft Dispute”
(Source: European Commission, 16 Jun 2021)
European Commission Executive Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis and US Trade Representative Katherine Tai reached an understanding relating to large civil aircraft, transforming almost 17 years of disputes into a forward-looking, collaborative platform to address bilateral issues as well as global challenges.
Both sides will now seek to overcome long-standing differences in order to avoid future litigation and preserve a level playing field between our aircraft manufacturers and will also work to prevent new differences from arising.
The EU and the US also agreed to suspend application of harmful tariffs worth of USD 11.5 billion for a period of five years that hurt companies and people on both sides of the Atlantic.
The two sides will collaborate on jointly analysing and addressing non-market practices of third parties that may harm our large civil aircraft sectors.
Under the Understanding on a cooperative framework for Large Civil Aircraft, the two sides expressed their intention to:
- establish a Working Group on Large Civil Aircraft led by each side’s respective Minister responsible for Trade;
- provide financing to large civil aircraft producers on market terms;
- provide R&D funding through an open and transparent process and make the results of fully government funded R&D widely available, to the extent permitted by law;
- not to provide R&D funding as well as specific support (such as specific tax breaks) to their own producers that would harm the other side;
- collaborate on addressing non-market practices of third parties that may harm their respective large civil aircraft industries, and;
- continue to suspend application of their countermeasures, for a period of 5 years, avoiding billions of euros in duties for importers on both sides of the Atlantic.
