Introduction to Export Licensing Controls


This course looks at the very important area of Export Controls on goods leaving the United Kingdom. It covers the export of both military and dual-use goods plus software and technology.

In this course the procedures for getting a licence and the different types will be explained. Also, what the categories for licences are and the compliance with shipments to different export regions.

As in all our courses, there will be plenty of Q&A sessions and references to sources of information.

This Course is one of six courses that count toward our Level 4 Customs Practitioner Award
