The Department for International Trade has published a new open general export licence (OGEL): information security items. The purpose of this OGEL is to allow the export of ‘low risk’ information security items deploying encryption to a wide range of destinations.
A number of military and dual use OGELs have also been updated and amended to reflect new contact details of the ECJU and Ministry of Defence (MOD). References to outdated government departments have been changed and, where appropriate, visual branding of the OGELs updated. The scope of these OGELs remains the same.
