Question

We currently utilise both SIEL and OGEL licences, if the OGEL does not cover the country of destination presumably a SIEL must be applied for?

(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 http://opentoexport.com/info/webinars/)

Answer

You have answered your own question there… An OGEL will get the less sensitive items, to the “friendlier” destinations, while the items and destinations that require a little more scrutiny will be shipped under a SIEL – or an OIEL if you are able to get one.

Answer

Please also bear in mind that the OGLs contain a list of terms and conditions which must be adhered to ie some have requirements for other authorisations eg MOD Form 680. So it’s not just whether the country and control list entry are included. The easiest way to check all this is to print off the OGL or complete the conditions check on the OGL checker tool
