Open General Export Licences

Dear Exporter, 

The Department for International Trade has reviewed the scope of 2 open general export licences to make them more useable.

Notice to Exporters 2021/03

The purpose of these open general export licences (OGELs) is to allow the export of ‘low risk’ information security items deploying encryption to a wide range of destinations.

The OGELs have been amended to include China, Hong Kong and Macao as permitted destinations although this has been balanced by a reduced list of permitted items.

For general export control queries please contact our Helpline on 020 7215 4594 or

Please ensure you have registered for the Open General Export Licence (exports of dual-use items to EU member states)
