Licence for the export of military goods which have been imported into the UK for repair or replacement under warranty.

Detail

This open general export licence (OGEL) allows, subject to certain conditions, the export of military goods which have been imported into the UK for repair or replacement under warranty.

All previous licences are revoked

This licence is subject to reporting requirements under the transparency initiative.

These goods need to be re-exported or returned to one of the following:

  • the government of the country which sent the goods to the UK
  • the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation Maintenance and Supply Agency
  • any other person who the goods were exported to - however, this replacement, or these repairs, will have to take place within 5 years of the date they were originally exported
