Is it possible that only 2 export licences could cover you worldwide?


I’ve been told by my predecessor that I have only to use two licences and that covers us worldwide…GBOGE2013/00437 and GBOGE2015/00409 – could this be possible?

(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


That would depend on your products and where you export them to.

Unfortunately the SPIRE references don’t mean anything to anyone but you and the ECO so without further information on what the specific licences are I couldn’t confirm either way.


Hi Phil

If you have recently joined the company and are dealing with licence application, we run a series of courses which will help you understand the licensing process.

Please see the attached training bulletin to identify when the next course is within your area.
