The Department for International Trade (DIT) has confirmed that current export licensing arrangements will continue after the UK has left the European Union on January 31st, 2020, and will remain in place during the Transition Period which will last until December 31st, 2020.
Items subject to strategic controls, such as firearms, military items, dual-use items, items that can be used for torture or capital punishment, radioactive sources and other items controlled under international sanctions, will continue to be controlled by the Export Control Joint Unit (ECJU).
DIT has also clarified that "The open general export licence (export of dual-use items to EU member states) is not required to export dual-use items to the EU during the transition period."
