In line with Cabinet Office guidance, my intention is to start the review of the regulations introduced under the Export Control Act after they have been in force for three years—from May 2007. The review will be carried out by DTI's Export Control Organisation, which has responsibility for the legislation, in consultation with other interested Departments and parties.
