CSIS Translation: Updated Dutch Export Controls on Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment and Related Government Documents

The following are translations of Dutch government documents related to export controls, national security, and technology policy.

The first document is a full English translation of the Netherlands’ new export control regulations on advanced semiconductor manufacturing equipment. These regulations specify which types of semiconductor manufacturing equipment—based on either usage of a specific type of technology or performance beyond a specific threshold—now require a license in order to be legally exported from the Netherlands.

The other three documents are official government communications between the responsible government ministries and the Dutch parliament, which provide useful insights into the strategic rationale and political context behind the new policy.
