National Export System (NES) and authorisation procedures: removals of BIS licensable goods to EU destinations

A very small number of goods still require specific BIS licences when they are removed to an Other Member State (OMS). However, no export declaration will be required. 

In these instances, the licence should be presented to the local control office no later than three days before the proposed date of shipment, unless alternative arrangements are agreed with that office. A photocopy of the export licence should accompany the goods to their destination.
