Category A Goods


The promotion of Category A items is prohibited on all Clarion Defence & Security platforms. This restriction applies to all forms of promotion, including the distribution of brochures or other promotional material which features images or details of any Category A goods, even if your company does not intend to market these goods.

Category A goods include:

- Goods banned by the EU because of evidence of their use in torture.

- Restraints specially designed for restraining human beings - leg-irons, gang chains, shackles and individual cuffs or shackle bracelets except those that are ‘ordinary handcuffs.

- Portable devices designed or modified for the purpose of riot control or self-protection by the administration of an electric shock - such as electric-shock batons, electric-shock shields, stun-guns, and electric-shock dart-guns - components specially designed or modified for the aforementioned.

- Handheld spiked batons

- Cluster munitions, explosive sub-munitions

- Explosive bomblets specifically designed to be dispersed or released from dispensers affixed to aircraft.

- Components specially designed for “cluster munitions”, “explosive submunitions” or “explosive bomblets”.

- Land mines, anti-personnel mines, and anti-material cartridges (Land mines act 1998)


Note: Services in respect of the list of prohibited equipment are also prohibited.

The only non-unitary munitions permitted to be promoted or displayed on DSEI Connect are those which comply with the provisions of the Convention on Cluster Munitions. Specifically, they must have all of the following characteristics:

a. each munition contains fewer than ten explosive sub-munitions b. each explosive sub-munition weighs more than four kilograms c. each explosive sub-munition is designed to detect and engage a single target object d. each explosive sub-munition is equipped with an electronic self-destruction mechanism e. each explosive sub-munition is equipped with an electronic self-deactivating feature.

All other non-unitary munitions, explosive sub-munitions and explosive bomblets, together with components specifically designed for such cluster munitions, explosive sub-munitions or explosive bomblets are prohibited.

This exclusion does not apply to conventional munitions which are designed to dispense flares, smoke, pyrotechnics or chaff, electrical or electronic effects or which are designed exclusively for an air defence role.

If you are caught promoting Category A goods without a relevant and valid Standard Individual Trade Control Licence (SITCL), which must be obtained from the Export Control Joint Unit by the exhibitor or agent, your content will be removed from the platform. UK companies or UK nationals involved in such activity may also face enforcement action from the relevant UK authorities.
