Welcome to the Checker Tools, provided by the Export Control Organisation, the
UK's regulatory authority for export licensing of military and dual-use
goods. The database comprises two distinct elements:
Goods Checker helps to establish if your items
are controlled and identify the appropriate control entry ('rating') reference from the UK Strategic Export Control Lists. If so, you will
need to apply for an appropriate export licence. Use the tool in conjunction with the Control List Classification Search Tool
available on the ECO's SPIRE database.
OGEL Checker helps to identify if an appropriate Open General Export Licence (OGEL) exists. If so, ensure you can meet all the terms and conditions, before registering via ECO's SPIRE database. If either no OGELs exist or you cannot meet all conditions, you will need to apply for a Standard Individual Export Licence (SIEL) via SPIRE. Registered OGEL users are subject to ECO Compliance Audits. As an OGEL user you should opt to receive ECO's Notices to Exporters for future licensing updates.
