The government continues to monitor closely the situation in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

All licences are kept under careful and continual review as standard and we are able to amend, suspend or revoke extant licences as circumstances require.

In the event such decisions were taken, for any licences, we would issue a ‘Notice to Exporters’.
