Export Controls: Why are multiple licences required for different countries for the same product?


Why, having obtained a license to export a product to one English speaking country , why is it then necessary to obtain a new licence for a second English speaking country, possibly with the same customer and for the same application?

(This question was asked at one of our recent webinars on Export Controls. You can listen to this webinar on our recent webinars page at https://opentoexport.com/info/webinars/)


It’s all to do with risk – some countries and end users are seen to carry a greater risk and therefore you can’t have a SIEL for multiple customers – but an OIEL may be an option.
