No licence applications were refused. The table includes the end user types but I am withholding the actual names of the end users as disclosure would prejudice commercial interests. Temporary licences are granted with conditions to return the items licensed within the period of the validity of the licence, usually twelve months.

All export licence applications are assessed on a case-by-case basis against the Consolidated EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria.
