On June 11, 2021, the EU issued the revised Regulation on Control of Dual-Use Items Export (EU 2021/821, hereinafter referred to as "the Regulation") in its official gazette. The Regulation came into force on September 9, 2021, and replaced the EU's existing export control laws and regulations, which were introduced in 2009. Compared with the revised proposal of the Regulation issued by the European Commission for the first time in 2016, the newly revised Regulation has made certain adjustments in the scope of control, further reflecting the competition and consideration between EU member states and the European Commission on the specific scope of control and measures when revising the Regulation. Through the introduction of the main structure and content of the newly revised Regulations and interpretation of the newly revised contents that deserve attention in the Regulations, this paper compares the Regulations with the export control rules of China and the United States, and finally provides reference suggestions for compliance.
