The Export Control Joint Unit (ECJU) administers the UK’s system of export controls and licensing for military and dual-use items. It brings together licensing operations from DIT, MOD and FCO. “Dual use goods” refers to items that can be used for both civil and military purposes including items used by the police and security sectors. ECJU takes decisions to grant or refuse an export licence.

Come and talk to us to find out how to determine if your items are controlled and which licences you should use to export. Remember – penalties apply if you try to export without the right licence.
