Each quarterly report published since ‘Strategic export controls: licensing statistics, 1 January to 31 March 2015’ (published in July 2015) provides users with:

  • a set of data tables presenting data on licensing decisions and processing times for all licence applications
    • for each quarterly report data is provided annually and quarterly from 2008 to the latest available quarter as excel sheets.
    • each set of tables is fully updated where they have been changes to data since the last publication (back to the start of 2008) so users should refer to the latest release for the most up to date data
  • the same data presented in csv spread sheets for easier data manipulation
  • a statistical commentary report that aims to summarise the key data trends and provide context and explaination for trends
  • a country level data report giving data per country published as a PDF

Country level data reports are available for each quarter and year from January to March 2008 onwards.The information available in these reports is provided in each quarterly report from January to March 2015.
