This open general export licence (OGEL) allows the export of dual-use items (with both a civilian and military application) from the UK to EU member states and the Channel Islands.
This licence will come into force at 11pm on 29 March 2019 if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. You don’t need a licence to export dual-use items to EU member states or the Channel Islands before this date.
This OGEL was published on 1 February 2019 to allow exporters time to:
- understand the terms and conditions of the licence
- register to use the licence before it comes into force
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 the exports or transfers and where the ECJU may inspect them.
