The Irish Presidency and the European Commission will host the 2013 Strategic Export Control Conference in Bruxelles on 26 June 2013. Further to the adoption of the 2013 Commission Staff Working Document (SWD (2013)7) on strategic export controls drawing the conclusions from the public debate organised in the wake of the 2011 Green Paper, the Strategic Export Control Conference will bring together export control officials from EU institutions and Member States with industry associations and exporters, manufacturers and other economic operators involved in production or trade of dual-use items, as well as representatives of civil society and academia. It will provide a forum for public and private stakeholders to discuss dual-use export control issues and pave the way to the preparation of a Communication of the Commission setting out priorities for a review of the EU export control system.
