Not encourage, support or assist in any way, any country for development WMD China strictly abides by its obligations under relevant international laws and UN resolutions. China actively participates in international & regional non-proliferation efforts. 3

4 China s views on Solution for Proliferation Peaceful means: dialogue and cooperation; Regime building: fair, pragmatic and nondiscriminatory; Norm setting: international instrument; balance between non-proliferation and peaceful use.

11 China s export control: enforcement dimension Key points: Rule of law & administrative enforcement Inter-agency coordinating system Enforcement, investigation & penalties Social awareness & internal compliance 11

12 Main Relevant Governmental Organs: At central government level: Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) Ministry of Health (MOH) Ministry of State Security (MSS) State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (SASTIND) General Administration of Customs (GAC) At local level 12

13 Licensing System and Procedures Publicly accessible licensing regulations and procedures, supported by the December 2003 white paper on China s nonproliferation policy, outline in detail the process of licensing controlled exports. The promulgation of these regulations represents a significant step forward for the Chinese export control system, further anchoring China s export control system to a law-based framework and making clear to both Chinese and foreign enterprises and governments the rules upon which China s export control system is based. 13

14 Agencies in export control 14

15 License Procedure 15

16 Role of Agencies in Licensing Procedure 16

17 MOFCOM The Export Control Division (ECD) of the Science and Technology Department in the Ministry of Commerce is the main licensing and regulatory body for dual-use export controls. In 2003, MOFCOM restructured the Export Control Division into two sections, making the office s two functions distinct and reportedly more efficient. Export Control Division I assumed the specific duties of responding to other states requests for end-user certificates and end-use guarantees, as well as other matters relating to foreign countries export control requirements (as they relate to Chinese imports). Export Control Division II retained all of the regulatory functions for licensing exports of controlled goods from China. 17

18 MFA The Department of Arms Control (DAC) in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) participates in the interagency licensing review process and leads the coordination of international policy on nonproliferation and export controls for the Chinese government, including the adoption and implementation of China s international commitments and treaty obligations. 18

19 NCWCIO The principal chemical export licensing body is the National CWC Implementation Office (NCWCIO). NCWCIO is responsible for implementing China s CWC obligations, including submitting annual reports to the international Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), facilitating OPCW inspections in China, and regulating the production, import, and export of chemicals according to China s Controlled Chemicals List (identical to the CWC control list). The export or import of any of these chemicals requires a license, and the NCWCIO serves as the principal license review body for these exports. 19

20 20

21 CAEA The China Atomic Energy Authority (CAEA) is the government s nuclear industry regulatory body, and its mandate includes administering nuclear export controls. One of CAEA s five departments, the Department of International Cooperation, is responsible for licensing nuclear imports and exports and issuing governmental assurances to foreign nuclear regulatory bodies.109 This office serves as the principal licensing office for exports of nuclear materials and equipment and technology for nuclear power reactors, in addition to being responsible for issuing Chinese governmental assurances regarding the end-users and enduses of nuclear materials and technologies imported into China. 21

22 22

23 SASTIND The main licensing body for administering conventional weapons export controls is the State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (SASTIND) The Arms Trade Division of SASTIND s Department of International Cooperation receives and vets licenses for conventional military exports, as well as for some missilerelated items. 23

29 Dual Use Item Control --Applying Licenses Article 7 All exporters of nuclear dual-use items and related technologies shall be registered with the Ministry of Commerce. Article 8 the exporter shall apply to the Ministry of Commerce, and submit the following documents: (1) identifications of the applicant s legal representative, principal managers and the persons handling the matter; (2) a copy of the contract or agreement; (3) technical specifications or testing reports of the nuclear dual-use items and related technologies; (4) certificates of the end-user and the end-use; (5) the guarantee documents provided for in Article 6 of these Regulations; and (6) other documents required by the Ministry of Commerce. 29

Article 20 Upon approval by the State Council, the Ministry of Commerce may, jointly with the departments concerned, temporarily decide to exercise control in accordance with these Regulations over the export of specific nuclear dual-use items and related technologies not included in the Control List. 30
