Civil aircraft parts – YES some do need export licences
So you’ve been working in aerospace for many years and you’ve never needed export licences because, export controls only relate to military goods – WRONG, GO STRAIGHT TO JAIL, DO NOT PASS GO, DO NOT COLLECT £100.
Some avionics and instrumentation require export licences as do certain seals and gaskets.
There are trade embargoes in place to some countries and, if you lease aircraft and change equipment or configuration for a new customer you could be ‘modifying for military use’.
This briefing will highlight where these controls may be found, how they impact brokers, supply chain and maintenance organisation and what steps to take to avoid prosecution and fines.
