Notice to Exporters 2017/15: Four OGELs updated

Four Open General Export Licenses (OGEL) have been updated:

    • Open general export licence (export after exhibition or demonstration: military goods)
    • Open general export licence (export after repair/replacement under warranty: military goods)
    • Open general export licence (technology for military goods)
    • Open general export licence: (exports under the US-UK defence trade co-operation treaty)

And here is what has changed:

The amending order makes a number of changes to schedule 2 to the main order, which lists the military goods, software and technology subject to export controls. These changes reflect amendments made to the EU common military list following agreement to alter the munitions list in the export control regime known as the Wassenaar Arrangement.

Each of these open general export licences has been amended to add to the list of excluded goods, ratings ML8.a.40, and explosive co-crystals under rating entries in ML8.a. The updated OGELs have been published (listed above).The licences are dated 13 July 2017. However, to give exporters time to absorb the changes, these new licences will not come into force until 18 July 2017.

The current versions of OGELs will remain in force until 2359 on 17 July 2017. After this date you will need to refer to the updated licences.
