On November 11 2008, Marketvision received its Certification of Registration into the Controlled Goods Program (CGP). This accreditation permits Marketvision to possess or transfer controlled goods in accordance with the Defence Production Act and the Controlled Goods Regulations.
The Controlled Goods Program (CGP) is a Federal Government Program administered by the Department of Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC).
The Controlled Goods Directorate (CGD) administers the Controlled Goods Program, a domestic industrial security program that helps strengthen Canada's defence trade controls and prevents the proliferation of tactical and strategic assets including weapons, satellite global positioning systems and communications equipment, military equipment and related intellectual property. This is done by regulating and controlling the examination, possession, and transfer of controlled goods and controlled technology in Canada. Anyone who conducts business in Canada and examines, possesses and/or transfers controlled goods and/or controlled technology in Canada must comply with the Defence Production Act and the Controlled Goods Regulations.
Some examples of controlled goods and/or controlled technology that are covered by the CGD are global navigation satellite systems, nuclear weapons and design testing equipment, tanks, munitions, ammunitions with a caliber greater than 12.7 mm and some firearms.
The official details on controlled goods and/or controlled technology are found in the Schedule (s.35) of the Defence Production Act and must be read in conjunction with the Export Control List, published by the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada.
