2-16: Forgings and castings
Forgings, castings and semi-finished products (identifiable by material
composition, geometry or function) specially designed for any products in
categories 01 to 04, 06, 09, 10, 12 or 19.
The above summary -- by the
Coalition to Oppose the Arms Trade (COAT) for its web report "Canadian
Military Exports to the Middle East and North Africa" -- was derived from a detailed
description of this category of munitions published by the Department of
Foreign Affairs and
International Trade Canada (DFAIT) in a
A Guide to Canada’s Export Controls (June 2006).
This DFAIT document describes seven
different groups of products on the "Export Control List" whose export is
"controlled" by the Government of Canada. One of these seven
groups, known as "Group 2" or the "Munitions List," is
comprised of 22 categories of military products. These are the
categories of products whose export is documented in a series of DFAIT documents
published since 1990, called Export of Military Goods from Canada.
The relevant section from A Guide to Canada’s Export Controls
detailing this category on the "Munitions List" is provided below:
castings and other unfinished products the use of which in a controlled product
is identifiable by material composition, geometry or function, and which are
specially designed for any products controlled by 2-1. to 2-4., 2-6., 2-9.,
2-10., 2-12. or 2-19.
