dual purpose commodity, dual use item


Explanation:
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland:
Kaksikäyttötuotteiden vienti

Kaksikäyttötuote on hyödyke, joka soveltuu normaalin siviilikäytön lisäksi myös sotilaallisiin tarkoituksiin.

They use 'dual use item' on their website, but I think the other option is better.
