TABLE A.I Figures of Table A.I are broken down per Member State, and where possible per EU Common Military List category where (a) = number of licences issued; (b) = value of licences issued in euros; (c) = value of arms exports in euros (if available) (1). Total EU licence refusals to each destination, region and worldwide are provided, broken down by EU Common Military List category where (d) = number of licence refusals (small discrepancies may appear between breakdowns and totals due to refusals concerning more than one ML item or refusals for items other than those appearing in the ML (2)); (e) = criteria numbers on which refusals are based (the approximate number of times each criterion is invoked is indicated in brackets). NB: Statistics are compiled differently by each Member State: no uniform standard is used. Consequently, owing to current procedures in the area of arms export reporting or data protection legislation, not all countries have been able to submit the same information (3) It is important to note that row (c) of Table A. I is the total of the actual exports by those countries which submitted these data. Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Greece, Ireland and the United Kingdom could not supply these data; therefore row (c) of the EU total does not reflect total EU actual exports. Sweden has reported total values only for rows (b) and (c). France and Italy have reported total values only for row (c).

(1) To make the table more readable, nil values and/or the mention ‘not available’ are omitted, and empty rows deleted. (2) Concerning refusals (row (d)), totals do not always correspond to the sum of the refusals shown per military list item; this is because in some instances one refusal concerns more than one military list item, and in some instances refusals which have been issued in accordance with the Common Position for items which do not appear on the military list (for example dual use items for military end-use) are included in the total. Concerning Austria: with regard to items covered by the EU Common Military List, the Austrian legislation distinguishes between (3) (i) ‘war material’ and ‘equipment on the Common Military List not listed as war material’. Figures reported in row (c) may relate to exports made earlier than 2009 in particular because values of actual exports of equipment of the Common Military List not listed as war material are available to the competent authorities only after expiration or full utilisation of the individual export license. (ii) Concerning Greece: the reported export licences include temporary exports for overhaul, repair, exhibitions, demonstrations and field trials. (iii) Concerning France: exports to Hong Kong are included in the figures for China (Mainland). Exports to Greenland, the Faeroe Islands, Aruba, the Netherlands Antilles and the islands associated to the United Kingdom are considered without object; exports to New Caledonia are not included (but can be found in the national report). (iv) Concerning the Netherlands: — As values of global licences cannot always be attributed to individual military list categories or individual countries, quoted total values may be higher than the sum of the values per ML category or per destination. — The figures on actual exports reported by the Netherlands are based on information provided by exporters in 2009, and may reflect exports based on a licence issued in a previous year. Although much care has been given to the collection of the data on actual exports, the actual export figures for 2009 may be higher than the values quoted in this report. (v) Concerning Slovenia: in addition to values of licences reported in this report, Slovenia also issued arms export licences to the Czech Republic and Russia. The value of these licences was 0 because the weapons were transmitted for destruction. (vi) Concerning Romania: export licences to Liberia have been issued pursuant to UN Security Council resolution for use in Liberia by governmental forces. The goods represent donations made by Romanian Government and US Government to Liberian Government.
