UK/US Defence Trade Cooperation Treaty
HC 107, Third Report of Session 2007-2008 – Report, Together with Formal Minutes, Oral and Written Evidence
- House of Commons – Defence Committee
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
At present, arms and defence-related technologies cannot be exported from the US without an export licence. The system is burdensome and time consuming and discourages US/UK industrial collaboration. This report, 'UK/US Defence Trade Cooperation Treaty (HC 107)', examines the UK/US Defence Trade Cooperation Treaty, which would seek to establish a new framework for arms trade and technology transfer between US and UK by removing the need for a licence in certain categories. The Treaty is only a framework agreement as the detailed operation is still to be set out in Implementing Arrangements. In the expectation of satisfactory Implementing Arrangements the Committee endorse the Treaty.
