7.2.1. Licensing procedures and documentation
After it has been established that there are no foreign and security policy grounds to deny the export, the following shall be ascertained prior to the licensing and on the basis of the assurances provided to the Ministry of Defence: the end-user, the end-use, and the arrival and non-diversion of the export (through a non-exportation clause and afterwards through verification of delivery).
The End User Certificate is required when exporting military items permanently. For exports of components and subsystems, a Certificate on Use in Own Production is in some cases deemed sufficient. The significance of the component with respect to the final product of which it is part of will also be taken into consideration.
A Delivery Verification Certificate (DVC) issued by the Customs authority of the recipient country or the End User of the product in question is provided for as a verification of the import into the recipient country.
