Using a combination of text and images, this Guide describes the equipment currently prohibited or controlled under EC Regulation 1236/2005 concerning trade in certain goods which could be used for capital punishment, torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. To aid employment, the Guide is arranged in the same order as EC Regulation 1236/2005 (as amended by subsequent regulations), with the prohibited goods listed in Annex II preceding Annex III and Annex IIIa restricted goods. This is followed by a section on goods which the Omega Research Foundation considers should be prohibited or controlled under EC Regulation 1236/2005. The Guide is intended as a practical tool for use by a wide range of governmental and civil society actors.
