Export Licensing guidance

The purpose of the export control system is to provide an opportunity for the UK to retain cultural goods judged to be of outstanding national importance that would otherwise be exported. The system is designed to strike a balance, as fairly as possible, between the various interests concerned in any application for an export licence.

This resource from the Arts Council England’s Export Licensing Unit provides information about Export Licenses and how to apply for them, as well as further guidance documents.
