When exporting you always need to consider whether the items need an export licence.
There are four questions you need to answer:
1. what is the product
2. the country of destination
3. the end user
4. the end use
Goods can be strategic, military or dual-use. In certain circumstances almost any items can require an export licence.
So in order to answer your question some further details are required. If you do not want to enter them publically on Open to Export please feel free to email me directly.
Information on the Customs requirements for exporting is given in HMRC Public Notice 275. All notices can be found on our website www.hmrc.gov.uk under Quick Links > Library > Official Statistics – Publications – Notices, Info Sheets & Other Reference Materials > Import, Export & International Trade. The Public Notices are in numerical order.
A more comprehensive guide to importing / exporting can be found on our website by selecting ‘Import and export’ from the home page and then scroll down to ‘Guide to importing and exporting: Breaking down the barriers’.
I would also suggest that you contact the Taiwanese Customs Authorities to ascertain if there are any import restrictions on such items.
