Report of the Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 1718 (2006) prepared in accordance with paragraph 25 of resolution 2270 (2016)

On 2 March 2016, the Security Council, by its resolution 2270 (2016), decided to adjust the measures imposed by paragraph 8 of resolution 1718 (2006) and resolution 2270 (2016) through the designation of additional goods, and directed the Committee to undertake its tasks to that effect and to report to the Council within 15 days of the adoption of resolution 2270 (2016).

In order to fulfil those tasks, the Committee considered a list of weapons of mass destruction-related items, materials, equipment, goods and technology to be identified and designated as sensitive goods.

All items, materials, equipment, goods and technology contained in the following list are only for the purpose of implementation of resolution 2270 (2016) and shall not be considered as setting precedents for international and multilateral mechanisms, regimes, instruments, principles and practices in the spheres of non-proliferation and export control.

On 29 March 2016, the Committee acted in line with the Security Council's directive and approved the following:

3. Magnetic alloy materials in sheet or thin strip form having both of the following characteristics:

    (a) Thickness of 0.05 mm or less; or height of 25 mm or less;

    (b) Made of any of the following magnetic alloy materials: iron-chromium-cobalt, iron-cobalt-vanadium, iron-chromium-cobalt-vanadium or iron-chromium.

4. Frequency changers (also known as converters or inverters) having all of the following characteristics, and specially designed software therefor:

    (a) Multiphase frequency output;
