Access to controlled goods can be vital to your organization

Canada's controlled goods regulations allow your organization to possess special goods and technologies that you may need to carry out your business. Controlled goods are listed on the Canadian Export Control List under groups 2 (some items), 5 (item 5504 only) and 6 (all items). Though not deemed secret or top secret, controlled goods could be used for either civilian or military purposes and hence might pose a threat to the security of Canada. Obvious examples of controlled goods are missiles and rocket propellent, which could be used to launch a communications satellite or a warhead. More subtle are controlled goods like Kevlar®, a material that could be used to build lightweight components for commercial airlines or body armour for soldiers or insurgents. Some items are considered to be controlled goods only if they meet a specific threshold. GPS units that do not access certain restricted military bands are not considered controlled goods and can be freely purchased and used.

Canada established the Canadian Controlled Goods Directorate in 2001 to administer the Controlled Goods Program and the associated controlled goods regulations. Organizations that wish to possess controlled goods must register with the Controlled Goods Directorate and develop a local controlled goods program. This consists of:
