Licences and Authorisations
The State Export Control Authority issues single-use, general or unlimited licences and authorisations.
1. Single-use licences and authorisations may be issued to trade entities involved in international transfers of goods so as to conduct negotiations for specific economic agreements/contracts with foreign countries, to carry out international transfers of goods, or particular transfers of goods, in conformity with the above-mentioned agreements, which are valid for a certain period of time, but no longer than one year. On the basis of the application deposited by an entity involved in the transfer of goods, the State Export Control Authority may extend this timescale, but not beyond the validity time-limit set forth in the economic agreement to which this license/authorisation refers.
2. General licences and authorisations may be issued to entities involved in international transfers of goods, so as to conduct occasional negotiations for signing economic agreements with foreign countries, or multiple transfers to specific end users, provided for in the economic agreement /contract with foreign countries concluded while this licence/authorisation was valid, and is valid for the said period, but for no longer than three years.
3. Unlimited licences and authorisations may be issued to entities involved in international transfers of goods, if they are occasionally engaged in negotiations scheduled for signing an economic agreement /contract with foreign countries, or in cases of multiple transfers of goods to different end users in a specific country, as provided for in the economic agreement/contract with foreign countries designed to be concluded with individual importers during the term of validity of the licence/authorisation, as part of the relevant international treaties, or transfers involving countries, which are parties to the international export control regimes, or the relevant object of state policy, and are effective for a definite period of time, but for no longer than three years.
The binding terms for issuing special, general and unlimited licences and authorisations to entities involved in international transfers of goods, provide for preservation of the inter-organisational export control system in these entities, ensuring of observation of export control requirements in the process of international transfers of specific goods, keeping of documentation relating to these transfers, and submission of the relevant reports to the State Export Control Authority.
