Chemicals covered by the Chemical Weapons Convention are export controlled according to either the regulations for war materials or the regulations for dual-use products. Dual-use products have, by definition, both civilian and military uses and are therefore common in civilian research. Pay particular attention to the export control regulations when chemicals must leave Uppsala University's premises, especially if they are to be transferred to another business or leave Sweden. Export control also regulates some research (technical information) on listed chemicals. This means that researchers sometimes need export permits in order to share regulated information with international partners.
