The Export Control Joint Unit (ECJU) has updated the consolidated control list of strategic military and dual-use items that require export authorisation. This takes account of the changes made to the EU dual-use export control list (Annex 1) at the end of last year. See notice to exporters 2017/27.
In respect of extant licences you hold, some may include items whose control entry has changed. ECJU takes the view that as long as the description on the licence properly describes the items to be exported, then the licence remains valid.
Should the item in question no longer be specified by the new control text (if the control has been deleted or the parameters changed, for example) then the licence doesn’t need to be used for export purposes from the day the amending legislation came into force.
