The United Kingdom has been added to the EU001 General Export Authorisation which now offers a far easier logistics process between the EU and the UK. Figures released by the Export Control Joint Unit reveal a very slow uptake of the new EU OGEL which has been available since March this year which provides for the movement of controlled dual use goods from the UK to the EU and Channel Islands. Hopefully not too many companies will get caught out at the start of 2021.
