Notice to exporters 2017/01: 16 open licences updated

Published 20 January 2017

 

The Export Control Organisation has updated and amended 13 open general export licences (OGELs), two open general transhipment licences (OGTLs) and an open general trade control licence (OGTCL). Changes are detailed in the table below.

These changes are being made for a number of reasons: as a result of a planned update to the Military List, in order to reflect the removal of EU sanctions on Ivory Coast and Liberia and also to make a number of other corrections to destinations as specified in the table below. All licences have been updated to refer to the new Department for International Trade, of which Export Control Organisation now forms a part.

The updated OGELs have been published and are accessible as listed in the table below. The licences are dated 20 January 2017. However, to give exporters time to absorb the changes, these new licences will not come into force until 31 January 2017.

The previous OGELs will remain in force until 23:59 on 30 January. You should refer to the current OGELs until 30 January. After this date you will need to refer to the updated licence.

If you no longer meet the terms and conditions of a particular licence because the nature of the goods or destinations has changed then you will need to de-register from the licence via SPIRE.

If the goods are no longer subject to export controls (i.e. listed under a Control List rating code heading), then you no longer need to apply for a licence for the particular rating code specified. However, you will still need to complete an annual return at the end of the calendar year in December.

Further information about OGELs is published on GOV.UK.
