Malaysia is not a member of the four multilateral regimes; Australia Group, Missile Technology Control Regime, Nuclear Suppliers Group, or Wassenaar Arrangement, but does maintain a national list of controlled goods based on the most recent European Union control list. This list is divided into two parts: military goods and dual-use goods. The dual-use list is similar in structure to the U.S. Commerce Control List and follows the European Union’s general numbering system. The legal basis of strategic commodities licensing controls in Malaysia is generally the Strategic Trade Act 2010 and the Strategic Trade (Amendment) Act 2017. The licensing authority for all dual-use items is the Ministry of International Trade and Industry/Strategic Trade Secretariat (MITI/STS).
