Defence Export Controls Agency

The Defence Export Controls (DEC) agency is the Australian Government agency that administers regulations regarding the export of defence and strategic goods and technologies, and issues export permits for regulated goods. The DEC website provides a range of important and useful information.

DEC has developed a self-assessment tool to assist users to establish whether or not a permit from DEC is required to export, supply, publish or broker controlled goods, software or technology. The Online DSGL Tool is available on the DEC website.
