This OGEL allowed, subject to certain conditions, the export of specified military items. It was created to reflect Wassenaar updates agreed in 2012. The Wassenaar Arrangement was established with the goal of promoting transparency and increased responsibility in transfers of conventional arms and dual-use (having both a civilian and military application) goods and technologies.
This open general export licence (OGEL) has been permanently revoked. As all the decontrolled items in this OGEL have been incorporated into the UK Military List (Schedule 2 of the Export Control Order 2008), there is no further need for this licence.
