Welcome to Elic (e-licensing)

Elic is an electronic licensing system which replaces the existing paper-based licensing processes. Its purpose is to electronically record and process transactions in the areas of industrial products (Goods Control Act) and war materials (War Materials Act).

With effect from 1 October 2014 all applications (requests, preliminary enquiries etc.) relating to dual-use goods, war materials as well as special military goods, will be electronically recorded, processed and administered with Elic. Paper-based documents can no longer be considered .

All paper-based licences already issued prior to 1 October 2014 will continue to be valid. However these can no longer be extended
