Greater Manchester & Liverpool Chamber of Commerce are organising a Webinar on Export Licences and Controls on 5th May 2020.

Between May and October 2019, HMRC issued penalties between £5,000 and £9,000 to 9 UK exporters for unlicensed export of goods. This does not solely depend on the nature of the goods but also on the end-user and how the goods will be used. Many companies are not aware of export control regulations implications for them and do not know how to apply for an export licence or how to best manage it going forward hence risking strict penalties and fines. This webinar is part of a range of event, training and services offered by Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce to help businesses ensure they are exporting compliantly.

The webinar will focus on the practical aspects of Export Controls relating to Small to Medium Sized Enterprise (SME) and will look at the integrated process of managing export licences. The below will be covered:

  • Understanding and controlling your product (technical specifications and codification)
  • Controlling sales (quote/order reviews)
  • Manage licences and related documentation within business and ECJU (ERP/SPIRE)
  • Control product release, dispatch process and documentation (CoC/invoice/dispatch notes)
  • Governance, Training and Audit

This will be followed by a Q&A where you will have the opportunity to ask questions to the speaker.

Who should attend this event?
Companies that may be or that are already impacted by Export Controls.

Costs: This event is free of charge, but registration is required.


Registration details will be shared with event's partners.


Registration is required to received the webinar's details.
