UK publishes ‘no deal’ Brexit guidance on exporting controlled goods

The UK government has published a Technical Notice informing stakeholders on how export controls will be affected in the event that the UK leaves the EU with ‘no deal’. It explains (inter alia):

  • How export licensing requirements for different groups of items would change;
  • What the UK government would do to simplify licensing; and
  • Where exporters of military and dual-use items, civilian firearms, and other goods can find relevant information.

The Notice states that a ‘no deal’ situation “remains unlikely given the mutual interests of the UK and the EU in securing a negotiated outcome”, but that it is the duty of a responsible government “to prepare for all eventualities, including ‘no deal’, until [it] can be certain of the outcome of those negotiations”.
