If you apply for a standard individual export licence (SIEL) for firearms exports from the Export Control Joint Unit, part of the Department for International Trade, you will need to complete and attach an EC3 form along with your application via SPIRE.

An EC3 form is required if you are exporting firearms to European Union countries.

The EC4 form is a continuation sheet to be used if required.

You must upload these forms to SPIRE as Word documents.
