Update on Export Controls NTE 2024/04 - What Traders need to be aware of

On 12th March 2024, the UK Government released the latest amendments to the Export Control Regulations. These new regulations make specific changes to the strategic consolidated lists particularly Schedule 2 (military goods, software, and technology) and Schedule 3 (dual-use goods, software and technology). Full update can be found here.

Strategic Consolidated Export Lists are comprehensive lists of items subject to export controls and licences. These lists contain items that are deemed to have strategic importance due to their potential military, dual-use (having both civilian and military applications) or security-sensitive nature. Typically, they include goods such as weapons, nuclear materials, chemical or other dual-use purposes.

In the UK, Export Controls are managed by the Export Control Joint Unit, part of the Department for Business and Trade. Companies engaged in international trade, particularly those dealing with sensitive technologies or items listed on the Strategic Export Controls List must be aware of export control regulations and ensure they comply with the government’s requirements. Violations of export control regulations can result in severe penalties, including fines and imprisonment so it is very important everyone involved in controlled goods have a good understanding of them.
