Notice to Exporters 2015/31: Invitation ??? have your say on a replacement for SPIRE, Wednesday 13 J

Article Date: 23 December 2015

The Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) is leading a project to create a cross-government digital platform for import and export licensing. This is intended to replace the current SPIRE system.

There has already been a high degree of participation from industry, but we would like to present our initial findings as to what the platform could look like, and how your user experience can be improved. It is important to get a range of views from individuals, small, medium and large companies as well as trade associations and others that use our licensing service.

Accordingly, we would like to invite you to attend a workshop to listen to your feedback and create a service that can greater benefit industry:

Date:         Wednesday 13 January 2016
Time:        9.30am arrive for 10am start, Q&A at 11am, event closes at 11.30am
ADS, Salamanca Square, 9 Albert Embankment, London SE1 7SP

Map and directions

Places will be limited, so please confirm that you would like to attend by emailing with ‘New Export & Import Licensing System – Wednesday 13 Jan’ in the subject line. Please also add the business sector in which you operate in the body of the email.
