The Department for International Trade has today published a new open general export licence (OGEL): export of dual-use items to EU member states.
The government’s technical notice on export controls explains that should the UK leave the EU without a deal on 29 March 2019, licences will be required to export dual-use items to EU member states. Licences are not currently required to export these items within the EU.
The purpose of this OGEL is to allow, subject to certain conditions, the export of dual-use items (with both a civilian and military application) from the UK to EU member states and the Channel Islands after the UK leaves the European Union.
Before using this licence, you must register through SPIRE, the export control joint unit’s (ECJU’s) electronic licensing system, stating where you will keep records of exports or transfers and where the ECJU may inspect them.
This licence will come into force at 11pm on 29 March 2019 if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
