All export licences are considered on a case by case basis against the Consolidated EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria, known as the Consolidated Criteria. This was set out in the Secretary of State’s statement to the House of Commons on Monday 10 July following the High Court’s judgment dismissing the claim for judicial review brought by the Campaign Against Arms Trade (HC Deb 10 July 2017, Vol 627, Col 46).

The Consolidated Criteria are fully compliant with the UK’s obligations under the Arms Trade Treaty.
