About us

We helped the UK defence and security industries to export.

On 15 July 2020, we became the UK Defence and Security Exports.

We did this by building strong relationships with industry and overseas governments.

We provided specialist export advice and practical assistance, working closely with industry and government departments including the Ministry of Defence (MOD), the Home Office and the Export Control Joint Unit (ECJU).

Who we are

The Department for International Trade Defence and Security Organisation (DIT DSO) had around 100 staff in London and another 27 members in our Export Support Team. DIT DSO had a small number of diplomatic posts overseas. We also had access to other overseas DIT/FCO staff.
