Notice to exporters 2020/09: Export Control Joint Unit updates guidance on compliance checks for open licences

15 April 2020


Notice to Exporters 2020/08 outlined the measures the Export Control Joint Unit (ECJU) is taking to ensure there will be minimum disruption to the export licence application process, as well as the advice we provide during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

We explained that remote compliance checks would be carried out and have been contacting exporters to inform you of these new arrangements.

We understand this is a difficult time for exporters. We will take as pragmatic an approach as possible when undertaking remote compliance checks, within the framework of export control legislation.

Details of our changes and further clarification can be found in Changes and further clarification on ECJU’s remote compliance checks, which has been published alongside this notice.
