Arms Export Controls (Committees on)

The Committees on Arms Export Controls (CAEC) consist of four select committees meeting and working together: Business, Innovation and Skills, Defence, Foreign Affairs, and International Development Committees.

The Committees on Arms Export Controls have worked together since 1999 to examine the Government's expenditure, administration and policy on strategic exports, that is the licensing of arms exports and other controlled goods. The four committees work together because each has an interest in arms exports. Each Committee nominates four members, though any Member of the four committees can attend.

We work principally by undertaking a single inquiry each year which typically examines exports over the preceding year and developments in export policy.
