When using an EU001 applied for in the UK for a shipment from France, does the legal entity of the shipper have to be UK or can it be French?

(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

Hi

The guidelines
http://www.exportcompliance.eu/index.php/en/99-latest-news/136-european-unionpublishes-new-open-licences-or-eu-general-export-authorisations-for-export-of-controlled-dual-use-items
seem detailed but then refer you back to your own country’s control authority when in doubt.

So I would suggest you would be better contacting the ECO directly
