The term Dual-Use Items refers to goods, including software and technology, that have both civil and military applications. EU law requires Member States to put in place licensing procedures for the control of exports of Dual-Use items. In order to export certain goods of this type the exporter must be in possession of a Dual Use Licence
DJEI (Department of Jobs Enterprise & Innovation) is the competent authority in Ireland with responsibility for the licensing of Dual-Use items for exportation and is responsible for determining whether or not an item requires a licence.
Revenue’s role relates to possible intervention and control at the point of export.
Council Regulation (EC) No 428/2009
Control Of Exports Act 2008
Control Of Exports (Goods and technology) Order 2009 S.I. No. 305 of 2009
Control Of Exports (Dual use Items) Order 2009 SI No. 443 of 2009
Applications for Dual Use Licence must be submitted by the exporter to DJEI who then process the application and, where appropriate, issue a licence to the exporter.
There are 3 types of Dual-Use Licence:
Individual Dual-Use licence
Global Dual-Use licence
Union General Export Authorisation (UGEA)
Where a licence is required for the export of a consignment the declarant is required to complete the following information in Box 44 of the SAD:
Code X002 and the Licence/Authorisation number.
The licence or authorisation must be available for inspection as required.
Exporters of dual-use goods that are classified at general dual-use CN Codes but which do not require an export licence/authorisation should enter the following information in Box 44 of the SAD:
Code Y901 followed by NAI (No Additional Information)
This will indicate that those items are exempt from the licence requirement.
In all cases, the failure to include the relevant code in Box 44 of the SAD will result in rejection of the declaration.
