Open General Export Control Licences (OGELs) suspension

4 Mar 2022

Following the government statements in February and under article 32 of the Export Control Order 2008, the Secretary of State for International Trade has suspended all extant export licences for dual-use items to Russia. This will include licences with Russia as a final destination.

In addition the approval of new export licences for dual-use items to Russia has been suspended with immediate effect.

If you have licences in scope, Export Control Joint Unit (ECJU) will contact you to confirm the decision and advise about actions you will need to take.
