The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) announced that on April 9, 2019, the Japanese Cabinet approved a revision to Appended Table 3-2 of the Export Trade Control Order (Cabinet Order No.378 of 1949; the “Export Order”) and added South Sudan to the list of the areas subject to strict export control (areas against which arms and other embargoes have been imposed by the UN Security Council) in accordance with UN Security Council Resolution 2428. If an export destination is a target area specified in Appended Table 3-2 of the Export Order, exports are more strictly controlled than those for other areas (Article 4 (1) (iii)-(iv) under the Export Trade Control Order). Enforcement of the Revised Export Order took effect April 12, 2019.
