Dear list members, An unofficial version of the 'dual use' items list adopted by the Security Council in resolution 1409 earlier this month is available on the Office of the Iraq Programme's website at http://www.un.org/Depts/oip/. Those who have followed its evolution will note that its form has changed. Whereas last year it had three parts (i. the 1051 lists; ii. based on Wassenaar; and iii. a grab-bag of leftovers) it now has five sections, corresponding to the four areas of controlled weapons (chem, bio, missiles, nuclear) and a general one ('conventional'). This reorganisation has made it harder for my amateur eyes to determine how much its contents have changed since last year. I would therefore be very interested in comments from individuals with arms and technology transfer control expertise. As a final note, while I've yet to see an official version, there does seem to be an official document number: S/2002/515. This perplexes me somewhat: has the Council adopted a document that didn't exist at the time of its doing so?
