Canada’s Export Requirements for Cryptographic Items

Canada’s Export Requirements for Cryptographic Items

To ensure public safely, the Global Affairs Canada (GAC) will continue to enforce cryptography controls. An Export Permit is required for some cryptographic goods as well as goods with cryptographic components (i.e., units, parts or software). The Export Control List (ECL) contains the product criteria for goods and technology that are subject to this export control. Shippers who fail to meet the criteria specified by the export regulations may experience shipment and/or clearance delays. For more information on this policy, please visit the GAC website.
