Currently there is (a) one company authorised to export riot control agents; and (b) six companies authorised to export riot control equipment under Open Individual Export Licences (OIELs).

However, a list of all names and addresses of companies that are authorised to export riot control agents and/or equipment can only be provided at disproportionate costs. Furthermore, such information may be commercially sensitive.
