There are 295 extant Standard Individual Export Licences, where the end user is Saudi Arabia.

There were 57 applications for export licences under consideration on 20 June 2019.

Details of Open Individual Export Licences (OIEL) that were extant as at 24 June (9am) and these licences were granted prior to 31 December 2018, will be placed in the libraries of the House.

Any licences granted from 1 January 2019 onwards have not, as yet, been published as official statistics on GOV.UK and therefore information about those licences cannot be disclosed.

The data currently published on GOV.UK covers licences where a decision was made prior to 1 January 2019, with details of each licence correct as at 15 March 2019. Information from the period 1 January 2019 to 31 March 2019 will be published on 16 July 2019 and data covering the period 1 April 2019 to 30 June 2019 will be published in October 2019.

OIELs are generally valid for up to 5 years from the date of issue. However, OIELs covering the export to EU Member States of goods entered on the Military List are generally valid for up to 3 years.

Disclosure of the names of those exporters who have been granted Open Individual Export Licences would prejudice their commercial interests and therefore we will not be disclosing this information.
