The Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation published a Manual to the Strategic Services Act and Strategic Services Implementing Decree on 22 August 2012. The Guide summarises existing obligations for exports with regard to strategic services, such as:

  • non-physical transfer of software and technology
  • technical assistance
  • brokering services
  • brokering services with regard to dual-use items
  • ad-hoc licence requirements
  • notification requirements

The Strategic Services Act came into force on 1 January 2012 and not only describes existing rules for strategic services but also introduces recent amendments. The Act covers services relating to military and dual-use items.
