Notice to Industry:
Launch of the Online Registration and Permit System of the South African Council for the Non-Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction
The South African Council for the Non-Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction (the Council) is pleased to inform all relevant stakeholders that the Council will be launching an online Registration and Permit System on 01 October 2020.
The Council is a statutory body established in terms of the Non-Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction Act, 1993 (Act No.87 of 1993) (Non-Proliferation Act) to regulate strategic (dual use) goods and technologies that could be used in the development and production of weapons of mass destruction. As contemplated in the Non-Proliferation Act, any person who is in control of any controlled goods or who has in his possession or custody or under his control controlled goods shall register with the Council. Also, the Act determines that import, export, re-export or transit of such goods may only take place under a permit issued by the Council.
Currently, all applications for registration and permits (import and export) are manually submitted by industry to the Council. In order to ease the administrative burden and improve service delivery, the Council embarked on the development of an electronic, internet-based system for submission of registration and permit applications.
Applicants would also be able to request additional functionalities with regard to permits.
Industry is encouraged to register on the new system from 1 October 2020. Companies with existing registrations with the Council would be able to update their registrations while new applicants would be able to submit new registration applications.
The submission of import and export permit applications should preferably be done on the online system from 1 October 2020.
Should you have any enquiries, kindly contact the Non-Proliferation Secretariat on 012 394 5779 / 3030 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
