Key

SIEL - Standard Individual Export Licence

Applies to:

  • A single exporter
  • A single destination country
  • A single consignee
  • A set quantity of items, specified by value
  • Permanent licences are generally valid for 2 years
  • Temporary licences are generally valid for 1 year (within which all items must be returned)

Due to ambiguities in the source data, groups of items listed as SIELs in this application may represent multiple licences.

Due to ambiguities in the source data, OIELs are counted once per destination country in this application, so overall numbers of licences may exceed official figures when showing data for multiple countries. When viewing data filtered by a single destination country, OIEL licence counts are accurate.

Groups of items listed as OIELs in this application represent single licences.
