U.K. Issues Notice to Exporters on Implementation of US-UK Defense Trade Treaty
As a follow-up to our previous post on the U.S. Senate's ratification of the U.S.-United Kingdom and U.S.-Australia Defense Trade Cooperation Treaties, the U.K.'s Export Control Organisation issued the following notice to U.K. exporters reminding them that ". . . the ratification of the Treaty by Congress has no immediate impact on controls of exports from the UK to the US. If you needed an export licence before, you still need one now."
In addition, the notice indicates that the "UK will . . . proceed to implement the Treaty over the course of the coming year."
