Global Project Licences


The Global Project Licence (GPL) simplifies the arrangements for licensing military goods and technologies between countries who are partners in a Framework Agreement and who are participating in collaborative defence projects. The countries concerned are the UK, France, Italy, Sweden, Spain and Germany.

A GPL is very similar to an Open Individual Export Licence in terms of the application and the resulting licence. Read more about Open Individual Export Licences.
