The UK also has in place controls on the trafficking and brokering (known as "Trade Controls"1 in the UK) of military equipment that includes SALW. This stipulates that if any of these activities take place partly or wholly in the UK, they will require a licence.
Full extraterritorial controls are in place on UK persons whose activities facilitate the supply of military equipment to embargoed destinations.
Furthermore, the UK involvement in the brokering of certain SALW (as identified in the Category B list of goods in the Export Control Order 2008) would be controlled where appropriate to prevent unscrupulous traders pursuing deals that are of concern to the UK from other countries.
