Trade Control Licences
Trade Control licences authorise the trading of either military goods or dual-use goods between one overseas country and another - commonly referred to as trafficking and brokering. There are three types of Trade Control Licences:
- Open General Trade Control Licence (OGTCL) allows the trading of specific items between specific destinations by any trader
- Standard Individual Trade Control Licence (SITCL) - specific to a named trader and covers involvement in the trading of a set quantity of specific goods
- Open Individual Trade Control Licence (OITCL) - specific to a named trader and covers involvement in the trading of specific goods between overseas sources and overseas destination countries and/or specified consignor(s), consignee(s) and end-user(s)
All applications and registrations to use an OGTCL, SITCL or OITCL should be made via SPIRE.
